One of the regular readers of my blog wrote the following in a comment:
“That [Dachau] ceiling was built low to begin with. You’d have to change the whole framing of the roof to end up with what is there [now]. The ceiling was built low – originally and by design.
I have written about the Dachau gas chamber, at great length on this page of my website:
The following quote is from the website page, cited above:
Begin quote from my website:
After Dachau was liberated on April 29, 1945, a team of U. S. Seventh Army officers investigated the camp for two days before releasing their official report which stated that the gas was introduced into the gas chambers at Dachau through shower heads suspended from the ceiling of the shower room in Baracke X, the crematory building. It was only later learned that the gas was in the form of pellets which were poured into the gas chamber through two openings on the east wall which are shown in my photos below.

Holes in the East wall of the alleged gas chamber at Dachau
Closeup of one of the wall openings into the alleged Dachau gas chamber
In my first photograph above, you are looking at the interior of the east wall of the alleged gas chamber, which is the wall on the front of the building. The second photo is a close-up of the wall opening on the left.
The information about the two wall openings in the Dachau gas chamber, which is given in the display in the undressing room next to the gas chamber, is as follows:
“Vents – flaps where prussic acid poison pellets could be inserted from the outside.” [The text of the display reads as though it were written by a lawyer. It seems to have been written to satisfy both the doubters and the believers.]
The openings for the “poison pellets,” shown in my two photographs above, are approximately 16 by 28 inches in size. There are two bins on the outside wall of the alleged gas chamber, which could be opened in order to pour the pellets onto the floor of the gas chamber.
The grated openings are less than two feet above the floor of the alleged gas chamber, and two of the 6 floor drains, in the room, are about 4 feet from the openings. The prisoners inside could have easily swept the poison pellets down the drain and poisoned everyone in the Dachau camp.
The manufacturer’s guidelines for the use of Zyklon-B, the poison gas allegedly used in the Dachau shower room, cautioned users that the pellets should be put back into the can, after gassing was complete, and returned for recycling, not swept down a drain. [Those stupid Nazis! Why did they put so many floor drains in a gas chamber? They were just asking for Holocaust deniers to speak up.]
In the descriptions of the gas chamber given by the American soldiers, who saw it in the first few days after liberation, it was universally stated that the gas was dispensed through the shower heads.
None of the American liberators, who saw the gas chamber in the first few days, mentioned the openings on the interior east wall where the Zyklon-B gas pellets were poured onto the floor through the two bins on the outside.
The prisoners, who escorted the American soldiers through the gas chamber, always pointed out the peephole on the rear wall of the alleged gas chamber, but none of the soldiers were directed to look behind them at the front wall where the two opening for the gas bins were located. This makes me think that the two large openings on front wall were not there until days later.
None of the American soldiers, who saw the homicidal gas chamber immediately after the liberation of the camp, knew that the gas that was used was not liquid or invisible vapor, but rather, the gas was in the form of Zyklon-B pellets that were about the size of peas.
The Nazis allegedly used Zyklon-B pellets in both the disinfection gas chambers, for killing lice to prevent disease, and in their homicidal gas chambers for murdering people.
Contrary to the description given above, written by a medical doctor with the US Army, the holes for the fake shower heads, that were set flush with the concrete ceiling, were not “evenly spaced.”
There are three rows of these ceiling holes. On the north side of the ceiling, there are three holes on the left side, then two ceiling vents with one hole between them on the right side. In the middle row, there are 6 holes and in the row near the south wall, there are 5 holes, making a total of 15 randomly-spaced holes for the fake shower nozzles.
My photo of the Mauthausen gas chamber shows what real shower heads looked like
