A brief discussion of the Soviet T-34 diesel engine is included in my essay at:

"It is generally alleged that the larger and more important of the two gas chamber buildings in Treblinka consisted of 10 chambers, five on each side of a corridor. Each chamber measured 8 m in length, 4 m in width, and 2 m in height, totaling 320 m2 in area and a 640 m3 in volume. The chambers were allegedly filled with the exhaust from only one Russian Diesel tank engine, which could have only been the 550 hp V12 with a displacement of 38.86 liters. The total area of 320 m2 could not have held more than 3,200 persons at one time. Given an average body volume of 75 l, these people would have taken up a space of 240 m,3 leaving about 400 m3 air volume.
The Russian Diesel tank engines of those days had a maximum speed of 2,000 rpm. Since a four-stroke engine discharges the contents of its cylinders only every second revolution, an engine running at 2,000 rpm blows an exhaust volume of one thousand times its cubic capacity into the chamber per minute, i.e., 38.86 m.3 Therefore, after a little more than ten minutes, enough exhaust would have been discharged to replace the entire air volume of the gas chambers only once."

 Cf. A. Donat (ed.), op. cit. (note 68 ), pp. 34, 157ff., and the Treblinka verdict of Düsseldorf, ibid., p. 300ff.; Y. Arad, op. cit. (note 17), p. 119f.; J.-F. Steiner, Treblinka
, Stalling, Oldenburg 1966, p. 173. Regarding the engine type, cf. note 31.
 J.-F. Steiner, op. cit. (note 74), p. 173, speaks of 200 people per chamber. J. Wiernik (in A. Donat, op. cit. (note 68 ), p. 161), on the other hand, fantasizes about 1,000 to 1,200 per chamber, whose area he gives as 7 × 7 m, in other words more than 20 people per square meter. Y. Arad, op. cit. (note 17), pp. 120f., puts a maximum of 380 but an actual estimate of up to 300 people into each chamber, and at times speaks of only 6 chambers, not 10.

The last reference--#76--gives as thorough an analysis of the actual engine as one can imagine including even the metallurgical composition of practically all of the T-34 engine's components. It was a light-weight engine that had origininally been for aircraft and had been developed by Hispano-Suiza in France and Spain. The Soviets lifted the technology and redesigned it as a superb diesel. The engine block was aluminum which allowed the engine to weigh-in at only about 1800 lbs if my memory serves me here. That is still rather heavy compared to automotive engines generally--but extremely light compared to equally-powerful Caterpillar diesels. Until the appearance of this superb T-34 diesel in the Soviet Union, there had been absolutely no automotive diesels in use anywhere in the entire Soviet Union. Up to that time, ALL
Soviet automotive engines were gasoline-driven and were most often exact copies of western models, most often from Ford.
During the war, the British and Americans were almost completely in the dark as to the details of the T-34 even though they were Allies of the Soviets. The only reference in western literature to any details was in a brief essay in a British journal that was clearly based entirely on the German essay--reference #76.

The Holocaust story is a hoax because 1) no one was killed by the Nazis in gas chambers, 2) the total number of Jews who died in Nazi captivity is miniscule compared to what is alleged.
