A 93-year-old former guard at the Nazi Stutthof concentration camp has testified at his trial that he once saw people being led into the gas chamber, followed by screaming and banging sounds behind the locked door.
I'm obviously not convinced he is telling the truth here, but he may be. As far as I know, the Stutthof "gas chamber" is one of few that could actually in theory have been used for homicidal gassing. It was a delousing unit after all, so in theory I see no reason why it shouldn't be possible to lock some people in there and gas them. I do not believe it (yet?), but it could, as far as I can tell, be true. Not on a hoaxter-scale, obviously, but for the sake of the argument, let's say it was used just a few times.
Here's a photo of the original building. I don't know when it was taken, but probably a while ago as it's black/white and long before it was converted to a Holocaust theme park.
Same building, same angle, after conversion:
First thing to notice is that they have totally remodelled it, as usual. The entire entrance is changed and rebuilt, and they have added a steel door.
Here's another photo, probably taken around the same time as the first one (perhaps same shoot?) Who is the man, and what does the text say? Does anyone know the origin of these? The first one can be found on the official stutthof site, but no credit/info that I could find.
Again, it's not hard to see that they totally rebuilt it. Why did they change the entire entrance instead of just adding a door? Are there any other old photos?
Finally another revealing photo:
Here we see the inside, with a wreath covering the draining hole (?) in the floor, while showing the obviously fake "hole in the roof". There was absolutely no need for that here, as this was indeed a functioning "gas chamber" It has a heating unit (as can be seen) outside, and no need for that added hole RIGHT above the hole in the floor. As far as I understand, it would function by blowing in zyklon B through that "hole" in the "bench" which is now without cover, it was probably covered with a grid of some kind? It *could* be that the hole in the roof is actually some kind of ventilation, as I'm not too familiar with how this delousing chamber actually functioned, but it would be a strange place to have ventilation (hard to access) so until further I assume it is another hole added for propaganda-purposes to fit with the narrative.
What do you guys think of this story / gas chamber? Of course a number of Jews claim that they are eye-witnesses to gassings, but... jewish eye-witnesses, well. There are also some other witnesses who have claimed different things, but there is no way to disprove all of them, even though some have already been shown to be frauds.

“Watch out everyone, I’m going to forgive him,” Loth, 76, said as he approached Dey, who admits to having been a guard at the Stutthof camp near Gdansk, which today is in Poland.
But Loth may have exaggerated his story — he was born into a Christian family and was likely never in a camp.
Are there people/inmates who have said that they never witnessed anything? This "gas chamber" was in the middle of the camp, and for everyone to see.
Are there more information or old photos?
I know that the exterminationist-story is full of holes and that it at "best" would be very limited real use of this to kill people. I do not believe it, but it is possible (?) that it has some truth to it, so I wonder if anyone have more info of this, as this trial is getting a lot of coverage?
