Fumigation cubicles, where clothing was deloused with cyanide gas, by the Nazis

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, Holocaust — furtherglory @ 2:22 pm

During the Holocaust, the Nazis used poison gas to fumigate the clothing of the Jewish prisoners in concentration camps. This was done to save lives, not to kill the prisoners.

My photo of Dachau fumigation cubicle where clothing was deloused with cyanide gas

The following quote is from a newspaper article:

In May 1945, the US Army released a photograph of a fumigation cubicle door with a caption that said Dachau prisoners were murdered in a gas chamber here. On the interior wall is the device used to heat the Zyklon B

End quote

No, no, no. The cubicles were used to kill any lice in the clothing of the prisoners — to save their lives — not to kill the prisoners.

Dear readers: You must get over the idea that the Jews were good and the Nazis were bad. The Jews were lying, stealing and cheating, while the Nazis were trying to save Germany from the Jews.

  1. Dachau didn’t have many Jews except in 2 periods:

    1. A short time after kristallnacht when Jews were temporarily sent there
    2. Shortly before the end of the war when the eastern camps evacuated westward.

  2. The biggest mistake the Germans made was they try to actually save the Jews in hindsight I’m sure they feel things should have changed a little bit don’t you think.
