Cremation Furnaces of Auschwitz, Part 2

Few objects of utter evil have inspired human imagination more than the ominous gas ovens of Auschwitz. Auschwitz is the epicenter of the Holocaust, the baseline of absolute evil. Here is where millions are said to have been murdered and obliterated in the gas ovens by the Nazis. But that's where the problem begins, because there was no such things as a "gas oven." What did exist, though, were cremation furnaces used to turn into ashes the remains of deceased inmates. Survivors claim that thousands of corpses were burned in them every day, and that smoke and flames shot out of the crematory chimneys.

The present study investigates the Auschwitz cremation furnaces from the bottom up. In the first section, the authors summarize the principles of combustion technology and briefly explain the chemical and physical processes of corpse cremations. Next they sketch out the development of modern cremation techniques with emphasis on Germany, and they investigate the results of several scientific cremation experiments conducted over the past 100+ years. Based on this data and on numerous scientific publications on cremations, they establish important benchmark figures, such as how long it takes to cremate a corpse, and how much fuel is needed.

The second section analyzes in depth the activities of the German company Topf & Sons, who manufactured the cremation furnaces at Auschwitz and other Nazi camps. Authors Mattogno and Deana next describe in detail the history and properties of the different types of furnaces installed. They then calculate cremation durations and fuel consumptions for each of the furnaces based on scientific experiments, documented data from actual cremations in similar furnaces, and mathematical calculations. They show that witness statements about gargantuan cremation capacities are wildly exaggerated, and they also prove that it was physically impossible for flames to emerge from the Auschwitz crematory chimneys.

This book ends with an overview of the cremation furnaces installed at other German concentration camps by other companies, and it briefly explains the legal framework within which cremations were conducted in WWII-era Germany both outside and inside its camp system.

This is Part 2 (Documents) of this three-part set with 1198 pages total, containing 505 document reproductions on 476 pages; Part 1, History and Technology, contains the text on 480 pages (search for ISBN 1-59148-091-4); Part 3, Photographs, contains 386 photographs, 364 of them in color, on 242 pages (search for ISBN 1-59148-093-0).
