Re: RIF Human Soap On Ebay

Hello, I'm still alive, though no more working "at full throttle" due to a serious health problem. But I hope I'll make it for still a few years to come! By chance I stumbled over this discussion at CODOH and would like to give my two cents to it. I studied the reports in the Dutch press -...

Re: Gas chamber at Majdanek with blue stains

You have provided no proof that HCN was used at Majdanek. Where did the "blue stains" mentioned in the thread's title come from, if not from HCN? About the use of CO at Majdanek, I wrote "IIRC" (If I Remember Correctly). You can feel free to doubt my memory. And please, Mr. (or ...

Re: Gas chamber at Majdanek with blue stains

That's a good question, indeed. CO, for instance, which was also used at Majdanek in the beginning, IIRC, does not leave traces. Certainly when, since the fall of 1942, HCN was used, nobody in the SS thought (or better: was allowed to think) that Germany might lose the war, which could entail proble...

Re: Inbound train records, but no outbound records. Why?

Re: Gas chamber at Majdanek with blue stains

At Majdanek, the gas chamber was far too small to be used as an air raid shelter. In addition, its walls were not strong enough to withstand a bomb explosion. The SS in the camps had their own, concrete, underground or half-underground air-raid shelters, and the prisoners did not need such devices.

Re: Gas chamber at Majdanek with blue stains

I am grateful to Hannover that he showed examples of customary gas-tight doors advertised for air-raid shelters in the late 1930s/early 1940s in Germany. Their function was to keep away poisonous gases that might appear in the environment from getting into the interior of a room. (Aside, these poiso...

There are only two small problems with these books: a) They refer only to registered prisoners, i.e. to the minority of the arrivals who had been taken in and had received a pri...

Re: AR Survivors / Treblinka

@ stefanob: Please remember that, at the place called "Treblinka," there were two camps, 2-3 miles apart. One was a small, regular concentration/forced labor camp, which was integrated into the system of prisoner migration between the camps, whereas the other was the very facility Revision...

Re: The quote-mining of Bruno Baum

Re: AR Survivors / Treblinka

@ Hannover: I'm not a Treblinka expert, as an historian, I'm specialized in Dora and Auschwitz. But AFAIK at the site called "Treblinka" there were two different camps, a small one that functioned similar to all concentration/forced labor camps, and a few miles away the other that Revision...

Re: transit camp Treblinka / questionaire

@ Hannover: Pizzaman is right, but as far as I remember, the form was similar, though much shorter. You seem to have a problem with the word "persecution." Could it be, Mr. Hannover, that you presuppose that there was no persecution of Jews in the 3rd Reich? If so, we can end the discussio...
