LETTER FROM CENTRAL SS CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT AUSCHWITZ TO GERMAN EQUIPMENT WORKS (DAW), <font color=red>6/13/1943</font>, URGING COMPLETION OF CREMATORIUMS I, II, III, IV AND OTHER CARPENTRY WORK
To the Deutsche Ausruestungswerke G.m.b.H. [DAW German Equipment Works, Ltd.] Auschwitz
Subject: Carrying out of carpentry work for local construction projects.
Reference: Letter of the Central Construction Management of 11/4/1942, Bftgb., 17450/42/Er/L, and repeated personal meetings with SS Ostuf. Wagner and Z. A. Lochner
In our above-quoted letter (copy forwarded to the office W IV) we asked you, following a meeting with SS Obersturmfuehrer Wagner, to complete the carpentry work for the below-mentioned construction as soon as possible, as otherwise the building operations would have to be suspended in winter; in particular
1. 15 new constructions for prisoners quarters.
2. 4 build-up constructions for prisoners quarters by adding storeys.
3. Temporary Kommandantur [Headquarters].
4. Laundry building with reception, delousing plant, and bath for prisoners.
5. Laboratory at Raisko.
6. Grass drying plant at Raisko.
7. Greenhouse plant at Raisko.
8. Crematoriums <font color=red>I</font> and<font color=red> II</font>, <font color=red>prisoner of war camp</font> Auschwitz.
9. Crematoriums <font color=red>III</font> and <font color=red>IV</font>, <font color=red>prisoner of war camp</font> Auschwitz.
The carpentry work, however, had in no case been done proportionate to the completion of the other parts of the construction despite the repeated verbal promises by the management of the Deutsche Ausruestungswerke, Auschwitz plant. In the first place, delivery without delay is requested for the doors (ordered by letter of 10/26/1942 Bftgb. Nr.: 17010/42/Ky/ Pa.) for the crematorium I in the prisoner of war camp, which is urgently needed for the execution of the special measures; otherwise the progress of the construction work would be jeopardized.
Likewise, the completion of windows for the reception building and the doors for 5 huts for the accommodation of prisoners i urgently required for the same reasons. Due to the lack of windows and doors in some of the constructions in progress the building operations had, on account of the <font color=red>now prevailing severe frost</font>, to be suspended thereby causing a delay in the completion of the urgently needed construction for considerable time. Since the central construction management, having transferred its own shop to the Deutsche Ausruestungswerke G.m.b.H., Auschwitz Plant, is no longer in a position to have carpentry work done of their own accord, the Auschwitz plant of the DAW must on its own part, do its best in order to assist the progress of the construction work being done in this place by delivering the carpentry work in time.
Thus, we renew our request to complete and deliver in the first place the carpentry world mentioned above without delay.
Furthermore, the supplementary terms of the agreement for the tender for the prisoners quarters and the laundry building asked for by letter of the Central Construction Department of 12/9/1942, Bftgb. No.: 19708/42/Tei/Lm, are still missing.

On this one I'm sure:
Look at the date, its June and its "now prevailing severe frost" in Poland. IDIOT'S!!! Its in the middle of the summer.
Did the Germans branded Auschwitz as POW camp?
Look at the numbers on the Cremas, did the Germans usually count that way in their documents?
