In 1968, the Jewish historian Olga Wormser-Migot, in her thesis "Le Système Concentrationnaire Nazi, 1933-1945," acknowledged that Auschwitz I (the major camp) was once "without any fuel chamber" (p. 157). She thereby affirmed that the tale of using morgue of Auschwitz crematorium I (located in Auschwitz I) as a gasoline chamber used to be a fantasy. Forty-five years after that little bit of honesty, Auschwitz crematorium I continues to be provided as having a gasoline chamber to millions of gullible viewers every day. students, even though, have normally kept away from the subject, and the sooner than the ebook of this booklet the main major research of the alleged gassings in crematorium i used to be a trifling ten web page article through Franciszek Piper.
