A news article, which you can read in full here, describes how a young Jewish boy was saved from the Auschwitz gas chamber, which had been disguised as a “faux shower.”

Note the holes on the ceiling of the alleged gas chamber at Dachau; all of the shower heads have now been stolen by tourists. My photo of the last remaining shower head at Dachau is shown below; this shower head is now gone, apparently stolen as a souvenir by a tourist.

The news article, cited above, tells about [Holocaust survivor] Chaim Schwimmer’s miraculous rescue, in 1944, from certain death at Auschwitz. In October that year, the 14-year-old was pulled from a crowd just a few steps from being murdered in the concentration camp’s gas chamber.
The following quote is from the news article:
Schwimmer was one of the approximately 50 young men selected for labor after having been forcibly disrobed and prepared to be marched to their deaths in the faux showers along with hundreds of others.
Note the term “faux showers.” There were allegedly faux showers at Dachau and Mauthausen, but as far as I know, no one has ever claimed that there were fake showers at Auschwitz.

At Auschwitz-Birkenau there was a real shower in the sauna building; it is shown in my photo above. The shower heads have been removed.
The alleged gas chambers at Birkenau were underground and they did not have shower fixtures.
The alleged faux showers at Dachau and Mauthausen were actually real showers. There were no gas chambers at either of these camps, although tourists are now told that the real showers at these camps were gas chambers.

So where did the prisoners, at these camps, take a shower? Allegedly, the prisoners at these camps never took a shower; the prisoners just stayed dirty for 4 or 5 years. This was in Germany, a country that is noted for cleanliness. You can walk down a city street in Germany, and you think that you are in Disneyland, in the early morning, because the streets are so clean.
This quote is from the news article:
Chaim Schwimmer, 85, recalled what happened after reaching the gas chamber’s building on that rainy afternoon.
“They told us to undress. We were expecting right away that they’d take us to the gas chamber. But we stood — and waited and waited and waited,” he said.
Three German soldiers entered the room. One ordered a young prisoner to sprint to the end of the room — apparently, Schwimmer thought, to test his fitness. Schwimmer boasted of his own ability to work. A soldier berated him, but ordered him to leave the building with the others selected.
Herskovic, now 88, was unusually calm that day, not dreading what likely awaited. He mumbled a passage from the Talmud on keeping the faith even when a sword was pressed against one’s neck.
After he had undressed, three soldiers appeared. One ordered the boys to line up, three per row.
“When he said that, I knew we’d be saved now. I stood in the second row, and I was immediately picked and sent to the right side, where we were to go back to the camp and remain alive,” Herskovic said.
My first job, after I graduated from college, was at a city newspaper, working as a fact checker. Apparently, this job of fact checking, does not exist on today’s newspapers. Reporters write anything that they feel like writing, and no one cares about the facts.
