Was the Zyklon-B gassing hoax made in America? Some of it certainly was as we shall see. A peculiar feature of American gas executions of criminals is that a fan is used o-n-l-y after the prisoner is dead to bring fresh air into the gas chamber and force vent the gases--at least most of them--up a chimney. But why not use the fan sooner in American executions? For German fumigations as practiced worldwide, there was nothing like this strange silence of the fan. If a fan or blower was present at all, it was used to help kill the infestation as well as remove nearly all traces of the deadly gas afterward. The key difference for American executions, however, was that one hoped to kill the prisoner "quickly," even "painlessly" if possible, with one deep breath taken as soon as a lethal concentration of cyanide rose to the prisoner's nostrils from the seething cyanide pot beneath the execution chair. If the fan were ON at this time, it would dilute and disperse the gas throughout the chamber and prolong the prisoner's agony and even frighten the "eyewitnesses." The pot would release cyanide gas quickly in a dense cloud of gas as soon as a cyanide salt egg dropped into the pot of sulfuric acid. So, do not mess up the execution by scattering this dense and lethal cloud of cyanide. By contrast, if one used Zyklon-B as the source of cyanide gas, even in an American gas execution--the granules could only release cyanide gas s-l-o-w-l-y after the can was opened and/or the contents dumped into the open. The "fans" are the tell-all fingerprint of the American role in the hoax. Prior to the so-called "holocaust" no one other than the Americans used such an odd "OFF" and "ON" switching of the fans or blowers.
Whether mass killing would have even been possible with merely the gradual escape of cyanide gas from a pile of Zyklon-B granules is a major problem for holocaust believers--even if aided by so-called "Zyklon Introduction Columns" as described by Henryk Tauber and some other "eyewitnesses." Those magic "Zyklon Introduction Columns" contributed nothing to the killing process. To kill everyone in a gas chamber within any given time period, a lethal dose of the gas had to reach everyone. Merely killing most of the intended victims would have been a fiasco. What to do with the "survivors?" Fans or, more properly blowers driving warmed air through supply and return duct work, would have been absolutely necessary to be sure there were no survivors regardless of ambient temperature or the number and behavior of the intended victims. Speculations about what might have happened in a chamber with only a gradual release and distribution of cyanide gas, w-i-t-h-o-u-t forced ventilation, are a hopeless muddle and prove nothing at all.
In several excellent YouTube videos, "denierbud" argues that "the Germans would NOT have done this, or that." That argument must seem weak to many viewers--but it may ultimately be persuasive as well. When anyone designs something new, there is a process they are likely to go through: 1) use "off-the-shelf" materials and technology as much as possible, 2) modify only as needed, and 3) create totally new equipment only if it is absolutely necessary. Cost is always a major factor. Few people have the unlimited time and money that many American military equipment developers seem to have today. As an engineer myself, I have designed many new things over the years; the design process always has certain common features.
For example, if one needs a vehicle to locate and destroy IED's in Iraq, the first thing one does--even in America--is try to find existing vehicles or equipment which can do the job with a minimum of modification. One should not reinvent the wheel or truck or internal combustion engine since there are countless wheels and trucks and engines out there already. All that may be needed is to armor plate some existing trucks and replace conventional tires with explosion-resistant tires. Much more may be needed--but, the design process begins by determining what is already available. If you can get some of the stuff you need at a local Sears or Home Depot, get it.
When the Germans supposedly designed the greatest mass murder facilities in all of human history, they totally ignored, supposedly, everything that competent designers have done since the stone age. Even before the stone age, primitive creatures, not just primates, used twigs and stones as tools because they were available. The Nazis, however, supposedly ignored everything that was already there, and available--and that is not believable. They ignored supposedly the excellent Zyklon-B technology that was widely used already, even in the two delousing stations just a few hundred feet from Kremas 2 and 3 in Birkenau itself. Why? Why would they have been so stupid? Wouldn't they have asked at least a few questions of people who were using Zyklon-B within their own ranks? Wouldn't they have asked a few questions of DEGESCH and/or its salesmen or technical experts? Wouldn't they have tried to see how Zyklon-B was actually used elsewhere?
Within the German technical literature about Zyklon-B, which includes great material about the superb gas chambers that were often used for railroad trains and delousing with forced ventilation, there is just as much discussion about "makeshift" or "behaelfsmaessige Gaskammern" which relied only on natural ventilation, or "convection." These "makeshift" gas chambers were rather ordinary structures, even "shoddy" structures, improved with sealed windows and doors, sometimes using treated paper and not much else. The reason one had to often use shoddy structures was that typhus was a deadly serious problem that easily killed thousands of people--and had to be dealt with quickly. One had to kill those damned lice! One could not simply wait until well-built structures were available. So, there was an active community of designers of gas chambers within German-occupied Europe. Any number of ordinary structures could be, and often were, simply turned into functioning gas chambers. Underground mines could have been used as well--as soon as the air supply had been blocked. To insist that "gas chambers" had to resemble American execution chambers as some revisionists have done, most notably Robert Faurisson, with all or even most of the same features is simply absurd. However, as we shall see the "eyewitnesses" to Nazi gassings were also guided, as Faurisson was, by the American gas execution technology while ignoring the German technology that was actually there. German engineers or designers would never have been that stupid.
Instead of turning fans on while people were being gassed with Zyklon-B, we are told again and again that the fans were ONLY turned on a-f-t-e-r the victims were all dead. Why? Circulation fans or blowers using existing ducts in the homicidal chambers would have provided rapid dispersal of the cyanide gas throughout the chambers.
The key difference between "makeshift" and the so-called "standard" gas chambers from DEGESCH was the presence, or absence, of "forced ventilation." Forced ventilation (Kreislauf in German) meant duct-work and fans and motors--and forced cyanide gas out of the Zyklon-B granules and then rapidly dispersed the deadly gas throughout the entire gas chamber--+followed by removal of the gas later on after everyone was supposed to be dead. For delousing, one had to kill the lice hiding in all the nooks and crannies of all garments and not just the ones that happened to be in the open or center of the gas chamber. By the same token, if one had to kill a thousand or more Jews, one had to be sure that little Isaac in a far corner lying beneath his already dead Aunt Sarah and Uncle Moishe also got his deadly dose of cyanide gas. By itself, cyanide gas tends to rise "naturally," toward the ceiling because it is slightly less dense than ordinary air. How would the deadly cyanide have even reached little Isaac without "forced ventilation" during the gassing itself? Relying only on natural ventilation (convection) or the air motion caused by panicky victims as alleged--would have been a disaster for any mass gassing arrangement. Some Jews would have definitely survived a three-minute or even a twenty-minute gassing. What to do with little Isaac screaming and "acting up" with the other "survivors?"
But, according to all of the holocaust scenarios, the "fans" were supposedly "turned on" o-n-l-y after everyone was dead. That is just too stupid technically to be believable. What was the point? It is a major flaw in the holocaust legend. The fans, or blowers, had to be running during the "gassing" itself. The scenarios we have been given using "Zyklon introduction columns" are technically absurd. Some minimal sheet metal work on any existing supply duct would have permitted anyone to insert Zyklon-B granules directly in the path of air being circulated through any alleged gas chamber--assuming it already had ductwork as alleged for the holocaust gas chambers. The HVAC system for the Leichenkeller all had provisions to heat the air as well. Warmed air in the supply ducting would have been another reason to use modified supply ducts instead of the so-called "Zyklon introduction columns" which allowed no heating except possibly from the alleged victims themselves. It gets really cold in Poland during the long winters that last into April.
To paraphrase what "denierbud" has already argued in his videos--"that is the way the Germans would have done it" but it is also the way competent engineers from anywhere in the world would have done it.
Any realistic homicidal gas chamber using Zyklon-B had to do the following:
1) recirculate warmed air through the Zyklon-B granules and throughout the chamber, and
2) after everyone was dead, blow fresh air from outside through the expended granules--and then, through and out of the chamber.
Around 1980 I had this explained to me in a telephone conversation with Robert Grubb from the American Cyanimid Company which was the American distributor of Zyklon-B at that time: "the cyanide gas had to be forced out of the Zyklon-B granules." In other words, "forced ventilation" was needed NOT just during the "venting" a-f-t-e-r all the Jews were dead--but during the actual killing phase itself. The repeated claim that "the fans were turned ON a-f-t-e-r everyone was dead" is a major flaw in the holocaust myth. It clearly implies that the fans were OFF during the actual mass killing. It is obvious to me now that this gross error by the hoaxers arose because of subtle differences in meaning of the English word "venting" and the German word Kreislauf. Semantics are important. The English word implies merely the "removal" of gas from a room or chamber whereas the German word also includes the blowing or "forced venting" of the gas mixture within and throughout the entire chamber. The addition of the word "forced" is needed in English to explain what is covered with only one word in German. For the non-technical person, "venting" by itself suggests merely removal of gas from a room or chamber as occurs during American gas executions. Those executions use the intense chemical reaction between the cyanide salt and the acid to "force" the cyanide into the chamber. For Zyklon-B, another kind of "force" was absolutely essential. The self-described "eyewitnesses" to alleged Nazi gassings had never witnessed any Zyklon-B murders or else they would have corrected such "technical errors" in their story. They had simply been told about American executions and concocted their Zyklon mass murder hoax accordingly. The connection to America is there and obvious. The connection to German science and technology is broken.
