One of the readers of my blog asked me if I have any photos of the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp BEFORE the scratches were allegedly made on the wall by the dying prisoners.
Today, tourists are told that the prisoners clawed the walls with their fingernails, trying to get out of the gas chamber before they were poisoned to death with Zyklon-B gas pellets.
Allegedly, the Auschwitz gas chamber was packed, to capacity, with adult prisoners, and then babies were thrown into the gas chamber, on top of the adults. Somehow the adults were able to reach up, over the bodies of the babies, and make scratch marks with four of their fingers, and their fingers just happened to be all the same length.
My first visit to Auschwitz was in September 1998. I also visited the camp again in 2005 and in 2007. My 1998 tour guide told me that I was not allowed to take photos inside the gas chamber, but I was so nervous that I just kept hitting the button on the flash gun that caused the camera to go off accidentally. Sorry that I was so disrespectful to the Jews who were gassed there.
The earliest photo that I have, which shows the scratch marks, was sent to me by Simon Roberts on Jan 12, 2004. His photo is shown below.
In the photo above, it appears that previous fingernail scratches have been covered over with white paint.
Note that my 2005 photo, shown above, was taken from a spot near the back door into the gas chamber. Today’s tourists enter the gas chamber through the open doorway that is on the left side of the photo above. In 1998, I was told that the victims entered through the back door, which is behind the camera in my photo above. Now tourists are told that the victims entered the gas chamber after going through the oven room where the bodies were being burned.
When I visited the Auschwitz camp in 1998, I was told by my tour guide that the victims entered the gas chamber through the back door, which is shown in my photo above. Now tourists are told that the victims entered the gas chamber through the oven room where bodies were being burned.
In my photo above, notice the white paint covering the wall on the left hand side. The fingernail marks that tourists see today are located just above the last white mark near the door into the gas chamber which is shown in the background of the photo above. My photos show that the nail marks were made AFTER 1998 when I took these photos.
Today’s students who visit Auschwitz are so brain-washed that they actually believe that the gassing victims were ushered into the gas chamber through the oven room.
When I first saw the alleged Auschwitz gas chamber in 1998, I knew that something was wrong because there was no high smoke stack on the building, like the one that I had seen on the gas chamber in Jefferson City, MO when I was a child.
As you may recall Fred Leuchter got into big trouble when he pointed out that the alleged Auschwitz gas chambers had no high smoke stack.
