In part one I covered why it is absurd that a diesel engine would have been employed to provide the deadly gas, carbon monoxide, to murder 900,000 people. Today we will look at the size and layouts of the alleged homicidal gas chambers and some claims made about their capacity.
The following image is the plan of the first alleged gassing facility. This image comes from Carlo Mattogno and Jürgen Graf’s book, Treblinka—Extermination Camp or Transit Camp? According to the verdict of the Düsseldorf Court of Assizes of September 3, 1965, the gas chambers of the first killing installation measured 4m × 4m × 2.60m and could each hold 200 to 350 people. 4m x 4m is about 172 square feet. This is a little over the size of one parking space.
The following is the plans for the second alleged gassing facility. According to the Assizes court mentioned previously, the size of each gas chamber was 8m × 4m × 2m and could accommodate 400 to 700 persons. The Wikipedia article for Treblinka also states that is the size of the gas chambers. 8m × 4m is 344 square feet. 344 square feet is the size of two parking spaces.
The larger alleged gassing facility had ten rooms connected by an inner hallway. Look at the image above and imagine forcing up to 7,000 people through this hallway and into the ten rooms that are each the size of two parking spaces. Doesn’t seem like a practical and efficient German-style setup. Holocaust affirmers will try to say that the Jews thought they were taking a shower so they willingly went into the rooms. Would you believe you were just taking a shower if someone was trying to cram you into a room that was filled to capacity? There is also the matter that there were already rumors of Jews being gassed in German camps going around. It’s just absurd to believe that Jews could be herded in like sheep.
Some Holocaust affirmers will invoke an experiment by Charles Provan as proof that the gas chambers could hold as many people as officials claim. Provan was able to fit 3 adults, 4 children and one infant (a doll was used) into a 21 by 21 inch box. Basically what he did was have the children crouch at the feet of the adults. To this experiment I say, so what? The 7 people and one baby doll in Provan’s experiment were compliant and so it was possible to carefully position them. I kinda doubt that you could recreate this experiment with 700 compliant people and I know you couldn’t do it with 700 unwilling people. Provan’s experiment proves nothing.
“But why would they lie about the capacity of the gas chambers?” you may ask. Allow me to explain.
The Treblinka so-called death camp was established in July 1942 and operated until October 1943. During these 13 months it is alleged that 900,000 Jews were murdered there. That means that 2,307 Jews would have to be murdered everyday. This is actually a feasible number, but the Germans wouldn’t have had the luxury of having a steady of amount of Jews to murder each day. The alleged victims were coming in on trains and the frequency of the train arrivals and the amount of people on them varied.
Let’s look at the excerpt from the aforementioned Wikipedia article. One train would come in the morning carrying up to 7,000 people. And then another train with up to 7,000 people would arrive mid afternoon. If you accept the gas chamber capacity that the officials give you might believe the claim of SS officer, Franz Stangl, that a train transport of about 3,000 people could be processed in three hours. And that in a 14 hour workday, 12,000 to 15,000 people were murdered.
But I don’t accept that you can force 700 people into a room the size of two parking spaces. I don’t accept that 15,000 people could be murdered a day in Treblinka. I don’t accept that 900,000 were murdered in 13 months. What I do accept is the testimony of survivors that state they were transferred through the camp. This is because the claims made about Treblinka are insane and/or impossible. There is more evidence for Treblinka being a transit camp.
Between the impracticality of using a diesel engine to produce deadly gas and the too small rooms, the narrative of the homicidal gas chambers in Treblinka falls apart. While researching this article I ran into the YouTube comment below. To think that people are ashamed to be themselves because of such a stupid lie is both enraging and saddening. To restore the dignity of the German people is one big reason to keep spreading the truth about Holocaust lies.
