As I said, that quote from Prufer about fine tuning is interesting and not to be overlooked. I am now at the point where I can see that it looks as if Bob has either avoided the correction from Zulu or he is just ignorant of it.
Back on page one.
Impossible, there was not enough space for 8 corpses, and more than one corpse per muffle would have caused damage to the oven, as stated by the builder of the crematoria, SS Kurt Prufer. Plus, the crematoria at Auschwitz gave off practically no smoke...as evidenced by many wartime aerial photos.
I am not aware of such statement from Kurt Prüfer, you can quote, but is correct that more corpses mean a risk of damages to the brickwork leaving aside other factors. Tauber did not say that he wanted to produce smoke, the issue is more serious, he informed
us that he wanted to have "a bigger fire emerging from the chimney"
. This sentence thus informs us that not only he wanted to produce bigger fire, there was a fire even without this alleged practice albeit smaller, he made clear that alleged fire was a direct consequence of cremating the corpses. False of course. Crematoria emitted smoke as stated
by Prüfer and as evidenced by layer of soot
accumulated at the top of the crematoria chimneys, mainly on one side obviously because of a wind direction. And as I have informed in the thread where I provided the photos, in some cases this layer was accumulated in just a few or several weeks. Smoke is not visible on any photograph (ground/aerial) because crematoria were not active.
Let's examine the hyperlinks one by one.
1. he informed
2. as stated
3. layer of soot
#2 is Bob » Wed Jan 09, 2013 9:34 pm in Testimonies on flames from Auschwitz crematorium chimney on page two. He pops up on page fiveBob @ Testimonies on flames from Auschwitz crematorium chimneys
to inform us he is in fact Robert Bartec and that he wrote the article with Germar Rudolf. On page eight, Zulu takes that quote Bob posted on page two about Prufer saying the chimneys smoked and then provided us with a supplementary quote from Prufer saying the problem of smoking was basically fixed later. Zulu's post of this came in at Tue Jan 15, 2013 11:13 am. On page ten he corrects a source for the blackrabbit at Fri Jan 03, 2014 11:27 am. Then he never makes another appearance in the topic again. But the fact that he came back after that supplementary quote from Zulu tells me that Bob either read that quote from Prufer which talked about fine tuing the ovens to stop the emission of smoke, or he ignored it. Either way, this is very interesting.
#3. This is a post from Bob on Mon Jan 28, 2013 7:58 pm in the topic Smoke from crematorium chimneys in aerial photos on page one (the topic is only two pages). Here he gives footnotes in his posts to a bunch of online photos of chimneys in auschwitz-birkenau. In the first footnote, he has a bunch of photos and he says none of them show smoke. He then has a second footnote in this post saying which are the best three in his opinion. Of those three he says
none of them shows smoking chimney. August 20 is good too, but a little bit blurry and with the artifacts across the photo. May 31 1944 is worse, but still sufficient I think. December 1944 photo is worse and probably irrelevant I think as the crematoria were in the state of dismantling except for K-V. June 26, July 8, I never saw some good versions, only low resolution versions.
If I count correctly, we have some 9 high quality photos, (aerial + ground) covering period of Summer 1943, May, August, September 1944. We have only three low quality photos and one (August 20) which stands in the middle I guess. Nine photos against three, i think that this is not a problem of detection or quality - crematoria are not active.
So is Bob now arguing that there is no smoke because they were in a state of dismantling? That could feasibly work for his argument that crematoria smoked. But hannover, you also have an argument on your side about Prufer's statement regarding fine tuning to eliminate smoke emissions. I will not bother reciting the whole topic as others can simply read it here.Smoke from crematorium chimneys in aerial photos
I just want to point out that as far as I can see, Bob has not addressed that quote from Prufer where he basically implied that all smoke emissions could have been easily eliminated. Fine tuned if you will. Now that I dug a little deeper and found that quote from PRUFER HIMSELF, I am beginning to wonder if Bob and Germar Rudolf and Carlo Mattogno should take a harder look at this issue. But first I am going to look for his actual words and not rely on Pressace's summary of them although I do suspect Pressac is not lying on that front. If I can find those words from Prufer himself, I will then ask myself another question or questions. Are Bob, Germar Rudolf and Carlo Mattogno aware of it? If not, will they mention it in future publications? Like, will the English version of Mattogno's and Graf's book that is now in Italian be fixed or updated to deal with this Prufer quote? Will it even be in there? If it is not, it will make me think twice about Mattogno.
