[Reviewed by Mark Weber] Auschwitz: Technique and Operation of the Gas Chambers

Ken Wilson, a specialist in aerial photographs, had shown that the homicidal "gas chambers" of Auschwitz and Birkenau did not have gas evacuation chimneys, which would have been indispensable. He also showed that I had been right in accusing Serge Klarsfeld and Jean-Claude Pressac of falsifying the map of Birkenau in the Auschwitz Album (Seuil Publishers, 1983, p. 42). Those authors, in order to make the reader believe that groups of Jewish women and children surprised by the photographer between crematories II and III could not go any farther and were thus going to end up in the "gas chambers" and those crematories, had simply eliminated from the map the path which. in reality led up to the "Zentralsauna," a large shower facility (located beyond the zone of the crematories), where those women and children were actually going.

(36) Garment workshop at Auschwitz. Jean-Claude Pressac claims that these sewing machines were brought along with them by women deportees. The innumerable photographs of the deportation show not one single woman carrying a sewing machine on her back. Pressac’s interpretation is a perfect example of groundless and deliberate misinterpretation.

(51) Hot air disinfestations chamber in the central sauna at Birkenau. The claim was later made that the peepholes were proof of the existence of an execution gas chamber. That this is not the case, was later admitted by J.C. Pressac.

Several German documents mention the delivery of ‘gas-tight doors’ to the crematoria. Jean-Claude Pressac’s Auschwitz. Technique and Operation of the Gas Chambers reproduces several of these documents.
Pressac believes that in so doing, he has provided proof for the criminal intent in the construction of the crematoria. In reality, however, these are quite ordinary doors or windows of finished wood, some of which may be seen in illustrations 88bis to 92. The only difference between these and a ‘non gas- tight’ door appears to be that a strip of felt has been nailed into the cracks of the ‘gas-tight’ doors.
    The doors delivered to the Kremas were ‘gas-tight’, because, first of all, the temperature of a crematorium has to be kept down, secondly, to prevent the escape of odors and finally, because ventilation can only be effective if there are no counter-effective openings or poorly closed doors.
    It should be obvious to anyone who has examined the doors of real execution gas chambers and delousing chambers, that these doors and windows could certainly never prevent the escape of a highly dangerous gas.
    If the Germans had wished to use poison gas in these areas, they would have ordered and installed doors which were welded at the very least, such as those in the disinfestations chambers.
