But at least he has presented something for us to check, unlike you who makes one unsubstantiated claim after another (as Yeager correctly pointed out in the Night thread). Without a document, your claims have little or no historical basis. You, as the professed historian should already know this.

"Several" is what, three to five? So after all the times you've visited, you never once measured the dimensions of the room and wrote them down? What are you waiting for?

As a clue: In cases of dense occupation, in the Auschwitz I blocks about 1000 prisoners were living on one floor.
"Quite a big building" is obviously vague and is hence useless for the purposes of computation. You must present figures with units.
