The Bischoff letter: more flaws
ON page 210 of his book, Professor Robert van Pelt publishes part of a letter, supposedly written by Bischoff to his superior, Hans Kammler, in Berlin announcing the operationability of Krema II at Auschwitz-Birkenau.
What is surprising is that in such a relatively important letter and in the small segment shown, there are 3 spelling errors:
Nachbetrieb instead of Nachtbetrieb
funtionieren instead of funktionieren
Die instead of Dies
The other surprising thing about this letter is that its date, 29 January 1943, is the same as that of the Tomitschek/Swoboda note on the electricals for Krema II.
Bischoff states in his letter that the ovens were started up and performed well; on the other hand the Tomitschek/Swoboda note states that the electricals needed another two weeks to be connected , one wonders how the ovens worked without the blowers for the forced draft.
