There was no elevator door.
Sorry. English is a foreign language to me. I didn't mean a door in the "wooden door" or "iron door" sense. I meant simply the door space. In my own language, "a door" has both senses, material object and open space in a wall. Unless it doesn't reach the floor. In that case it's called a window. Now, please don't say there were no windows in the elevator. There might have been. This is truly Wonderland. Anything can happen.
It was a flat box, basically just a platform going up and down, with some boards on the sides.
But look up your Pressac, the drawing by Olere. By golly, it's a real door! Yes, in the material object sense. What does that say to us about Olere & Pressac?
The elevator was not the bottleneck.
Okay. Let me make a small correction. Pressac & Olere are so confused that it's easy to get them wrong. I wrote "Notice that in the Olere drawings showing bodies being introduced in the room by the elevator, the door itself actually looks very different from one drawing to the other."
I was wrong in this because the first Olere drawing is supposed to be the door opening into the "gas chamber" (i.e. the morgue) on the underground floor, not the elevator door on the ground-level of the crematory ovens.
It's very easy to get things wrong, because Olere actually has on the left side of the undeground level, next to the "gas chamber" door, a three muffled crematory oven! In the caption, Pressac simply says Olere got it wrong in the drawing, and that's all. He still trusts the guy.
Note that Olere was an ex-Sonderkommando that must have spent a lot of time in the premises of Krema III...
That's the "Holocaust" world for you.
