What was the elevator capacity? How was it powered?
Production line killing without a production line.

- Jews supposedly arrived in groups of 2,000 and were crammed into an underground area, Leichenkeller (morgue) 2, where they undressed.
- Then they were supposedly crammed into an adjoining Leichenkeller (morgue) 1, and then supposedly gassed with 'Zykon-B'.
- After the alleged gassing, the claimed 2,000 bodies had to be taken up to the cremation ovens above, on the ground floor.
- There were fifteen ovens to cremate the 2,000 gassed people. One would need another place to put the alleged bodies as there were more people supposedly waiting to be gassed.
- There was one elevator.
1. Was the movement of these claimed gassed Jews to the crematory ovens supposedly achieved using just one elevator?
2. What was the elevator capacity? How was it powered?
3. How quickly could an alleged 2000 corpses be lifted in one elevator to be cremated?
4. Wouldn't exposure to supposedly cyanide laden corpses be a hazard to those working near the crematorium ovens?
5. And where were the 'not yet cremated' corpses supposedly stored in order to accomodate the alleged, next incoming batch of Jews?
He said the one thing he could not forgive Mr Irving for was when he, Van Pelt, was forced under cross-examination to add up the number of victims that could have been handled by the one available elevator [a small platform hoist between the basement Leichenkeller 1 in Krema II at Auschwitz and the crematory furnaces on the ground level] because some survivors were in the courtroom, and this put them through agony.[*]
* Website note: The elevator is a well-known problem for the conformist Holocaust historians: how could the corpses of "450,000 gassed Hungarian Jews" have been hoisted by that one elevator from the basement morgue ("gas chamber") to the crematoria upstairs in three weeks in May 1944? It is an insuperable bottleneck, which Van Pelt "solved" in Court, so far as we remember, by asserting that the Nazis stacked the bodies on the hoist twenty at a time and achieved an improbably, almost comically, high turnaround time. The hoist was some 4 feet by three and had no walls or door...
If the gas chamber would have been built on the same level as the cremation facilities, No elevator would have been needed at all. So the design with gas chambers in the basement is already absurd.Hannover wrote:A just under 9 ft. X 4 ft. elevator with no sides holding '25 corpses'?
That's about the size of a diving board at a swimming pool. That's utterly impossible, it's laughable..... The entire Auschwitz gassing tale falls apart on the absurdity of the elevator alone ... not to mention the many other points....
