As much fun as it is to meme on the ‘fake’ chimney of Auschwitz, this argument is really a red herring and I will explain why.
First off, there is nothing sinister or murderous about the presence of crematoriums and their chimneys (which did not have fire leaping out of them) in the concentration camps. The Germans preferred cremation as it saved lives by curbing the spread of disease. America did not have a problem with typhus during WW2 so most Americans aren’t familiar with the need to control the spread of lice. This is why the Germans had Zyklon B. Not for murdering Jews, but for protecting them by killing disease spreading vermin on clothing and bedding with Zyklon B in delousing chambers.
Back to the chimney, it is no secret that the chimney is a reconstruction. They also no longer try to pass off Crema I as being in the original state, much in part to David Cole exposing their lies. Germar Rudolf also did a documentary about this.
Since seeing that first picture you’ve maybe been saying to yourself, ‘Hey, the chimney isn’t attached to the building. Surely this must be some sort of Tomfoolery’. Alas, it is not, the chimney is just connected underground. Here is the blueprint for Crema I. At the top you can see the detached chimney:
If, for whatever reason, you don’t believe that the blueprint is authentic, consider that there is documentation of a request to have the chimney repaired.
So the detached chimney of Crema I is a non-issue at best and an easily refuted distraction at worst. Do not fret though, because there are plenty of actual issues. So many, in fact, that I don’t see myself running out of things to write about anytime soon. An example of one such issue is the claim of the 4 main gas chambers in Auschwitz holding 2000 people despite being 4/5 the size of a tennis court. The image below is a visual representation of that claim. Click here to read the full article. You can also keep scrolling to bring up random articles.
