Better still: in the Olere drawing you uploaded, the elevator platform is in the wrong place. It shouldn't even be visible. You get the same wrong impression in the photo of the Auschwitz Museum scale model. Even if one imagines that what Olere drew was the platform in cross-section, it's still in the wrong place. Should be to the right of "D" (the supposed "gas chamber" in cross section).
In fact, in the Bauleitung blueprints for Krema II (Krema III being its mirror image) the elevator is always represented as a very small rectangle to the right of anyone leaving the main morgue, i. e. if you stand at the entrance of the supposed "gas chamber", leaving it, the entrance to the elevator is on your right, not in front of you, as suggested in the drawing you uploaded. The orientation of the elevator entrance in what I refered to as fig. 51 in the "Crematorios" book agrees with the blueprints (only this time the scene is in Krema III).
Concerning the odd strip on the right of what I called fig. 51 (in my book), I have no idea of what Olere intended to portray. In the text, Pressac says it's a "wet ditch." I find this odd. If that's what it is, then it's not a "wet ditch" but rather a "water ditch", something Pressac avoided saying. It would become impossible to take the bodies out of the elevator platform without wading in the water of the ditch. Really odd. There are no indications of any ditches in the plans. It might be that Olere wished to draw some sort of indefinite strip-like object that might be taken for a conveyor belt, such as the Soviet news articles informed us about. Maybe you have some suggestion on this, as well as the other odd details and contradictions.
