A quick question- Krema 1

Postby cold beer » 1 month 5 days ago (Tue May 18, 2021 6:14 pm)

I've downloaded a video about the liberation of Auschwitz, in which a member of the Red Army's film crew says that (paraphrasing), when he saw the crematory ovens it didn't strike him as anything unusual until he heard the stories about what was happening in the camp.
He doesn't specify which ovens. Being that we are told that the Germans destroyed the crematoriums at Birkenau, that leaves Krema 1 at Auschwitz main which was converted into a bomb shelter.
My question is whether the ovens were removed when it was converted.

Krema 1 had been decommissioned in mid 1943 and was converted to a bomb shelter in 1944.

There is a Central Construction Office document from August 26, 1944 about the planned bomb shelter conversion. This document is quoted by Crowell in his work on bomb shelters. It's probably in some of Mattogno's books as well.

Re: Conversion of the old Crematorium for civil defense purposes

Attachment: 1 plan.

In the Attachment I present a plan for the conversion of the old crematorium for civil defense purposes with a request to authorize this conversion.

1. Work Schedule

Demolition of the old chamber ovens and cleaning up the leftover bricks for reuse.

Fill the flues and chimneys with the rubble and old material from the demolition of the chamber ovens.

Create the window and door openings.

Install the gastight doors, window shutters, and windows,

Manufacture of the necessary holes in the walls and pipes for the heating ovens as well as for the intake and exhaust ventilation,

Water installation and drainage work,

Relocation of the existing lighting according to the division of space,

Repair of floor and partial replacement with wood surfacing,

Repair the ceiling and painting with sealant.


By January 1945 when the Soviets got there, the ovens would have already been demolished. Same story with the Birkenau crematoria. Krema I was rebuilt a couple of years after the war.

Thank you.
I thought that was the case but I wanted to verify it.
I'm not familiar with Cromwell, where can I find that?

I have always doubted the claim that the Germans destroyed the crematoriums of Birkenau.
The Soviets include a flyover of Birkenau in their film but they do not show the crematoriums which I find strange, coupled with the Red Army film crew member saying he saw the ovens, I have even stronger doubts.

If there were no ovens at the main camp, then if he saw them at all, he saw them at Birkenau.

FYI, it's Crowell, Samuel.
