The 1500 kg capacity Demag elevator which was planed to be installed at Krema II never was delivered according with Carlo Mattogno. So, the alleged 500,000 Jews killed there were supposed to have been lifted up to the the ovens' level with that improvised artifact of 300 kg payload (up to 5 corpses ).

Besides the cremation capacity that elevator is indeed another bottle neck in the corpse disposal operations (additional handling, additional time wasting, additional maintenance, additional risks of complications of the procedure). If "industrial scale extermination" would have been the purpose of those buildings, they simply wouldn't be designed that way. Rather have the killing operation / gas chamber on a higher or at least even level with the cremation operations (for which an continuous incinerator would be used). Then move the corpses via a chute to the muffles/ovens. The crematoria are indeed designed to deal with the dead from occasional epidemics. The story of pulling the corpses with canes over the ground is another nonsensical feat of the narrative.
Would be great if we could get additional information and documentation around the issue of the elevators. Just to be exact, when formulating the arguments.
