The document is supposed to be written in pencil. Was that the case here? Maybe Höß has erasures that are hard to see.

Back to the railroad rails. I'm no metallurgist, but isn't my frying pan made out of steel? A frying pan is probably made out of cast iron unless it is stainless steel. Cast iron is cheap but brittle. A frying pan is not subject to the kinds of loads that would be the case with locomotive rails, no...

It will be interesting to hear if people think Stangl knew of technical problems with rails heating up, and thus included it. I doubt if he really tried to think it through. Stangl was obviously trying to impress with his penitence and his infamy, not unlike Eichmann, and liars frequently try to ad...

I don't know much about rails but during the American Civil War railroad wrecking was practiced by heating the middle of the rail over a fire then using horses to bend the rail around trees, etc. Sound like hard work to me. Presumably the ties were used for fuel. That's true, although Civil War ste...

I doubt it. There will probably be a complete media blackout everywhere until the guilty verdict is in.

It's wider and it has some shallow parts.

He does not seem to exaggerate his own rôle, I think. Most people want to be part of history. When they tell their story they want to be part of The Story. The history is something that Eichmann could have easily gleaned in gist from the postwar newspapers and magazines. After the war Eichmann was ...

This still doesn't mean that Eichmann's boasts are in any way truthful.

It must've been hard to keep that pool clean without a little more concrete poured around it to walk on. Yuck.

Scott says: How do I ignore it? I wrote it. So then, why did he ignore what he himself wrote? My point was Big Deal, after exploring all the facets, which includes the museum clarifying their story and supporting it with some documentation. Yours truly, and then he, asked ...

and Scott ignores: Nevertheless, the Auschwitz museum should produce a little documentation here. What is accomplished for them to hide the swimming pool when there is the theater? Or, for that matter, as the sign implies, why would the Germans disguise a fire-brigade pond as a swimming pool? How d...

No, because a pool allowed to freeze would crack, as I said in my previous post. A standard pool would have thin concrete--that looks massive, or "stout" as I said before. And no one would have to go around the gate, there was water available as shown in this picture, Scott missed this too. As I sa...

Besides, unless it were heated somehow you couldn't use it except during the hottest parts of the summer. Most municipal pools are not heated as they close in winter. Ice will crack the walls of a swimming pool. And this lack of heating renders the silly notion that it was 'built as fire brigade re...

Pressac states here that they were inlet vents. Oh sorry, you meant the fresh-air inlets in the Leichenkeller itself. I understand, although these would be blowing the HCN away from them once the ventilation system was energized--so if the exposure time was as short as possible, save for killing ev...

It's easier to pad a military budget for construction of something utilitarian like a "fire brigade reservoir" than for a swimming pool. It probably was used as a swimming pool. Big deal. That doesn't make it a holiday camp. Who got to use it, anyway? Besides, unless it were heated somehow you could...
