Visitors to Dachau enter the Baracke X building, shown in the first photo above, through a door on the south side of the building, and proceed through the waiting room, and then into the undressing room before entering the gas chamber. On the wall of the undressing room is a sign which tells visitors the following:

Gas Chamber

This is the center of potential mass murder. The room was disguised as “showers” and equipped with fake shower spouts to mislead the victims and prevent them from refusing to enter the room. During a period of 15 to 20 minutes up to 150 at a time could be suffocated to death through prussic acid poison gas (Zyklon B).

The second photo above shows three empty holes on the ceiling of the alleged gas chamber, where shower heads had been before they were stolen by tourists as souvenirs. Just below the ceiling of the Dachau gas chamber are two light fixture boxes [not shown], which were claimed, in a film shown at the Nuremberg IMT, to be the “top vents” for introducing the poison gas into the gas chamber.

Information given to tourists about the gas chamber at Dachau varies according to the person who is guiding the tour. Some guides tell visitors that the gas chamber was never used, while others maintain that the gas chamber was used a few times. If the gas chamber was never used, why was it built? Some of the guides say that it was used to train SS men in how to use a gas chamber.

A recent visitor who took a tour of Dachau wrote the following on her blog:

Begin quote from blog post:

Interestingly enough, Dachau was never considered an extermination camp. Hitler made sure that none of these camps resided in Germany. He wanted them to be in the countries that he occupied so it would be easier to transport the foreign people to them. So, knowing this, many wonder why Dachau had a gas chamber in it. The most popular theory is that since Dachau was one of the first concentration camps, it acted as a model for others. When Germans were trained to work in concentration camps, they were trained to use gas chambers, and some were trained at Dachau.

Some guides say that the gas came through fake shower heads, but others tell visitors that gas pellets were poured onto the floor through the two screened openings on the east wall of the gas chamber.

All but one of the shower heads has been stolen by visitors as souvenirs and at least one guide tells tourists that the gas pellets were dropped through the holes in the ceiling. Three of the holes for the shower heads are shown in the second photo above.

Although anyone can look up into the holes where the shower heads used to be and see that there are no pipes of any kind there, one tour guide told a visitor on September 24, 2008 that there were special plumbing pipes that brought the gas through the shower heads. It has been known for at least sixty years that the Zyklon-B gas that was allegedly used at Dachau was in the form of pellets the size of peas, and could not have come through the small holes in the shower heads.

how I missed the chance of a lifetime to become famous

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 9:55 am

Back in 1958, I was living in Germany because my husband was in the American Army, stationed only a few miles from Dachau. At that time, I was living in an apartment in Nuremberg where I had set up a darkroom. I was taking photos, using a Speed Graphic camera that took 4 x 5 negatives. I had my own darkroom in the apartment and I was enlarging the photos that I had taken. I wanted to set up a business, taking photos of American soldiers and their families, but the Army would not allow me to do this.

At that time, a group of American soldiers and their wives organized a trip to see the Dachau gas chamber. They were allowed to see the control room behind the gas chamber, but none of them had a camera, so no one took photos of the control room, which is now off limits to everyone. I did not go on this trip because I thought it would be too horrible to see a gas chamber where Jews had been killed.

On one of my recent visits to Dachau, I held a camera up to a window behind the alleged gas chamber room and took the photo below.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think that these are water pipes, not gas pipes. Why are tourists at Dachau not allowed to see the control room?

I think that my photo shows the same pipes, that are shown in the old photo above. I think that these are water pipes, not gas pipes.

proof that the American liberators of Dachau lowered the ceiling in the shower room to create a fake gas chamber

Pipe on the walll of the dachau shower room

Pipe on the wall of the Dachau undressing room next to the alleged gas chamber

I took the photo above in the undressing room for the Dachau shower room. Holohoaxers now claim that the Dachau shower room was really a gas chamber.  If the alleged gas chamber was actually a shower room, the pipe shown in the photo above was probably a water pipe. The pipe shown at the top of the photo is the electrical wiring for the lights in the room.

My photograph above shows the electrical wiring on the north wall of the undressing room, which is next to the gas chamber. Below the wiring is a large pipe which comes through the wall from the corridor and enters the gas chamber. The other side of this pipe cannot be seen inside the gas chamber because it enters the room above the 7.6 foot ceiling of the gas chamber. The ceiling of the undressing room is about 10 feet high.

The text of the display on the undressing room wall describes the undressing room as follows: “Disrobing – This is were (sic) the victims were to leave their clothes before entering the gas chamber disguised as ‘showers.’ Their clothing was to be brought to the disinfecting chambers [in the same building] before the next group [of prisoners] could enter the room.”

The prisoners’ clothing was disinfected with Zyklon-B, the same gas that was allegedly used to murder the victims in the alleged Dachau gas chamber. Four disinfection chambers are in the same building where the alleged homicidal gas chamber is located. The disinfection of the clothing was done to kill the body lice which spreads typhus.

The west wall of the undressing room has a door into the corridor that runs behind all the rooms in the crematorium building, including the gas chamber. This door, which is shown in the photograph above, is locked and visitors are not allowed into the corridor. Although visitors are not allowed into the corridor behind the gas chamber, the display on the undressing room wall has both a photograph and a drawing of the pipes in the corridor. The title of this section is “Operating facilities in the adjacent left corridor.”

The drawing in the display was done in May 1945 by Captain Fribourg, a member of the French Military Mission with the Sixth Army Group, Chemical Warfare. Captain Fribourg did an examination of the gas chamber at Dachau for one day and then wrote a report in which he did not reach any definite conclusion. He was of the opinion that a second visit would be necessary in order to study the system for circulating the gas and he also recommended that the walls be tested, but this was apparently never done.

France and the Soviet Union were in charge of prosecuting the German war criminals on the charge of Crimes Against Humanity at the Nuremberg IMT, but no report on the walls of the Dachau gas chamber was entered into the proceedings.

The pipes and valves behind the west wall of the gas chamber can be seen in the movie that is shown at the Dachau museum. This movie has footage from the film that was shown at the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal as proof that a gas chamber was used to murder prisoners at Dachau.

The narration in the film explains the gassing procedure as follows: “Inside the showerbath — the gas vents. On the ceiling — the dummy shower heads. In the engineer’s room — the intake and outlet pipes. Push buttons to control inflow and outtake of gas. A hand-valve to regulate pressure. Cyanide powder was used to generate the lethal smoke.”

The “push buttons” referred to in the film are shown in the drawing done by Captain Fribourg, but they are gone now. According to the information on the undressing room wall, they were stolen during the postwar years. There were 4 push buttons and 4 sets of light fixture boxes in the gas chamber when the American liberators arrived. However, four of the light fixture boxes now have no lights. According to the film shown at Nuremberg, four of the light fixture boxes were used instead as “gas vents” to put lethal gas into a fake shower room.

the death of the last priest who was imprisoned at Dachau

This news article tells about Father Hermann Scheipers, the last surviving priest who was imprisoned in the notorious Dachau prison camp, [who] died June 2 in his North Rhine hometown of Ochtrup, Germany, at age 102.

On this page of my website, I wrote about the priests, who were imprisoned at Dachau: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/KZDachau/DachauLife3.html

The following quote is from the web page cited above:

Begin quote

Dachau became the camp where 2,720 clergymen were sent, including 2,579 Catholic Priests. The priests at Dachau were separated from the other prisoners and housed together in several barrack buildings in the rear of the camp. There were 1,780 Polish priests and 447 German priests at Dachau. Of the 1,034 priests who died in the camp, 868 were Polish and 94 were German. Source: “What was it like in the Concentration Camp at Dachau?” by Dr. Johannes Neuhäusler.

Other clergymen at Dachau included 109 Protestant ministers, 22 Greek Orthodox, 2 Muslims and 8 men who were classified as “Old Catholic and Mariaists.”

Dr. Johannes Neuhäusler, an auxiliary Bishop from Munich, was one of the 8 clergymen at Dachau who had a private cell in the bunker, the camp prison building. He was free to leave his cell and walk around the camp. He could also receive visitors from outside the camp. The worst thing that happened to Dr. Neuhäusler at Dachau was that he was once punished by being confined indoors in the bunker for a week. He was punished for secretly hearing the confession of a former Italian minister who had just arrived at the bunker the day before. Dr. Neuhäusler wrote in his book entitled “What was it like in the Concentration Camp at Dachau?” that he had been betrayed by a Bible inquirer (Jehovah’s Witness) who worked as the Hausl (housekeeper) in the bunker.

Dr. Neuhäusler did not mention any ill treatment at Dachau but he did write about how he was beaten when he was initially sent to the Sachsenhausen camp.

End quote

The following quote is from the news article, cited above:

Begin quote

He [Father Hermann Scheipers]  escaped being sent to the gas chamber [in Dachau] because his twin sister, Anna, pleaded with authorities in Berlin, warning that his death would stir the Catholic population around Ochtrup.

Scheipers subsequently managed to escape from a death march to Bad Tolz, Germany, in 1945.

Iby Knill is still alive at 92 and still lying her head off

Iby Krill tells her sad story to students

Iby Krill tells her sad story to students in England

Two years ago, I wrote about Iby Knill on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2014/04/10/holocaust-survivor-iby-knill-breaks-her-silence-to-tell-story-of-a-twin-who-was-gassed-at-auschwitz/

According to a news article which you can read in full here, Iby is still alive and still lying her head off.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

As she told the story of her upbringing in former Czechoslovakia and Hungary, and her young adult life, there was visible shock as students heard the harrowing details of the war. Mrs Knill said she was transported 250 miles in a cramped train from Hungary to the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp.

She said: “When we arrived I was registered as a political prisoner and a nurse, which probably saved my life. In the six weeks I was there, 600,000 people arrived at the camp, with the trains queuing up to bring people in. When we were taken to be showered, we didn’t know whether we were going to die or not as the showers and gas chambers were side-by-side; you just had to stand and hope for the water to come down.”

End quote

How cruel the Germans were! They couldn’t even let these innocent Jews take a shower without putting them into a room where water showers and gas showers were side by side. What company manufactured the gas showers? Inquiring minds want to know!

The first photo above shows holes in the ceiling of the alleged combination shower room and gas chamber in the Dachau camp. All of the shower heads have been stolen by students and only the holes remain. The second photo shows a real shower room that is frequently called a gas chamber.

Another quote from the news article:

Begin quote

One story which evoked a big reaction from students stemmed from her time in Germany, as the hospital she [where she] worked at was being evacuated towards the end of the war.

“One woman who had recently given birth put her baby on some straw by the door on the wagon we were in to get it more air. A German officer jumped up into the wagon and stood on the baby, killing it, in front of the mother.”

End quote

How many times have you heard a Jew describe how the German soldiers stomped on babies as the mothers watched?

Strangely, I have never met any German men who acted cruel, at least not to me. Have the German men changed that much since World War II?

Ely Wiesel was a “global symbol of dignity and righteousness”

Monument to the prisoners who died at Monowitz

The figures in the photo above are supposed to look like the fence posts at Monowitz.

The title of my blog post today comes from a quote in a news article which you can read in full here: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/elie-wiesel-a-global-symbol-of-dignity-and-righteousness/article30739375/

The following quote is from the news article, cited above:

Begin quote

It began with Night, Mr. Wiesel’s seminal memoir of Jewish life, such as it was, in the Nazi camps. Though he struggled to find an American publisher and the book barely sold at first, Night caught on and changed the world. It gave voice to the voiceless, and turned Mr. Wiesel into a living symbol of the martyrdom of the innocent. It is impossible to finish his book and be unaffected by the experience.

Mr. Wiesel was an unusually gifted communicator. He wrote dozens of memoirs, novels, plays, essays, and more, overwhelmingly focused on the Holocaust and its legacy. He sold millions of copies of Night, alone. But his communication skills extended well beyond the written word. Mr. Wiesel’s quiet, still voice, softly accented with a European inflection, and his sad, puppy dog eyes made him an astonishing and captivating speaker.

And speak he did, for Mr. Wiesel did not see the abject horror of the Holocaust and its relentless machinery of mass death as a one-off aberration. Instead, he saw it as an ever-present threat to humanity. What happened to the Jews yesterday could happen to someone else today, he correctly reasoned, and frequently added his voice on behalf of those who were in the genocidal crosshairs. From Cambodia to Rwanda, from Kosovo to Darfur, Elie Wiesel spoke out eloquently and urgently. In doing so, he transformed himself from a chronicler of the Holocaust into a global symbol of dignity and righteousness.

Prisoners working at Monowitz

Prisoners working at Monowitz

The following information about Monowitz is from my scrapbookpages.com website, written before I became a Holocaust denier:

Auschwitz III, aka Monowitz, was established in 1942 at the site of the chemical factories of IG Farbenindustrie near the small village of Monowitz, which was located four kilometers from the town of Auschwitz. The IG Farben company had independently selected this location around the same time that Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler decided, in April 1940, to locate a new concentration camp in the town of Auschwitz. The most important factory at Monowitz was the Buna Werke, which was owned by the IG Farben company.

Of the three Nazi concentration camps located near the town of Auschwitz, the Auschwitz III camp was the most important to the Nazis because of its factories which were essential to the German war effort. The Monowitz industrial complex was built by Auschwitz inmates, beginning in April 1941. Initially, the workers walked from the Auschwitz main camp to the building site, a distance of seven kilometers.

The decision to build chemical factories at Auschwitz transformed both the camp and the town. On February 2, 1941, Herman Göring ordered the Jews in the town to be relocated to a ghetto, and German civilians moved into their former homes.

Auschwitz quickly went from a primitive Jewish town of 12,000 inhabitants to a modern German town of 40,000 people which included an influx of German engineers and their families. Both the main Auschwitz camp and the Birkenau camp were expanded in order to provide workers for the factories. Before Monowitz became a separate camp with barracks buildings, the prisoners had to walk from the other camps to the factories.

When I visited Auschwitz in October 1998, I was told that some of the Monowitz factories were still in operation, but this area was off limits to visitors. On my trip to Auschwitz in October 2005, I hired a taxi driver to take me to the site of the factories, but I was told that they didn’t exist anymore. On my way back to the Krakow airport from Auschwitz, the taxi driver from my hotel pointed out the factory buildings, partially hidden behind the concrete wall.

reporter who walked three times through the ashes of Auschwitz lauds Elie Wiesel

My photo of the barracks at Birkenau

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full here.

Begin quote

Three times I’ve walked through the ashes of Auschwitz, the most meaningful being that day with [Elie] Wiesel. I emerged looking not just at the big picture of persecution, but also looking at the small one. Asking questions like, how would I have handled it if someone stole my shoes? For inmates slavishly worked to the edge of extinction, shoes could be the margin between life and death.

End quote

I have been to Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II three times, but I have never walked through any ashes there. Where are the ashes?  Visitors to Auschwitz-Birkenau [Auschwitz II] are advised to stay on the road through the camp because there are pot holes hidden in the tall grass that covers the remains of the camp.

Maybe Greg Dobbs, the man who wrote the article, was writing metaphorically. Allegedly, there was no grass when Birkenau was in use because the prisoners allegedly ate the grass.

This quote is also from the article:

Begin quote

But at the same time, one might have thought that Wiesel also, somehow, could have been happy, 40 years later, in that singularly sad spot. Happy that the degenerate dregs of Auschwitz no longer were a death camp but a muscular monument to his people’s survival. Happy that by becoming the archivist of arguably the most malicious mass murders in the history of mankind, he was rich, he was revered. And that because of what he wrote, the rest of us might never forget.

But he didn’t look happy. He didn’t talk happy. He didn’t act happy. He was sad.

Sad that necessity had forced him to put pen to paper, sad that for many years after the war, relatively few among its survivors dared to speak of the Holocaust, let alone write about it for the sake of time immemorial.

End quote

Why did other Holocaust survivors not dare to speak of the Holocaust? I think that it was because they didn’t want to lie about events that never happened.

Way back in 2012, I was writing on my scrapbookpages.com website that Elie Wiesel should come clean about his past.

https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/01/20/should-elie-wiesel-come-clean/

Now it is too late and people, all over the web, are condemning him because of his fake story of being in a concentration camp. I deduced, very early, that Elie was a fake because of the mistakes he made in his writing.

None of the TV coverage of the death of Elie Wiesel has mentioned that Elie Wiesel was never in a concentration camp, but that he lied about being in several camps, to his dying day.
