This is arguably the most important early book on a frightening and difficult subject. In SeptemberFaurisson and Guillaume came to my place to assess the value of what I had been able to pick up in the Auschwitz Museum. The gas chamber was said to have contained three ovens.

This consisted of a letter dated 2 March from the Topf company, addressed to the Central Building Administration at Auschwitz. preasac

The engineer who signed the letter says that they have tried in vain to get from five different firms the ten required gas detectors and that, if they ever do, they will tell the construction office. He did this without first obtaining the necessary scientific and technical armor clakde, and the discussion turned into a debacle for orthodox historiography.

He says that the entire contents of this new book are already “tremendously well known,” except for the gas detector document that, he adds, certainly will not convince the revisionists. Facts are lethal enemies of the ‘Shoa’ legend, and every discussion of scientific details of the alleged genocide is a step further into the abyss for followers of the politically correct version of history.

He opens the door of the gas chamber. The original scans of the book itself may be viewed at any time by clicking on the thumbnail icon at the top of each page. Furthermore, he pointed out, ovens would not function in a chamber designed for carbon monoxide. They are both challenging. It was a desperate solution, but the only logical one compatible with our resources.

Medals, pensions, public office, political influence. He decided that it was not until later that the administration of Auschwitz decided to convert them into ‘death factories’ by converting the existing morgues into homicidal gas chambers.


Pressac’s new work was anything but a scientific study, as it contained no references whatsoever to scientific literature on the subject. It confirms that a genuine debate about the supposed extermination gas chambers is underway.

With his article on Majdanek, Pressac opened to debate a central point of orthodox ‘Holocaust’ concepts. He described his experience dramatically in the ‘Postface’ of Auschwitz: Instead, he was asked to study and photograph the ruins of crematoria in search of “false interpretations” of visible objects.

Thus Pressac would have us believe that German officials used their systematic mass extermination of the Jews simultaneously to murder Jews, and to save their lives. The Journal of Historical Review11 rpessacp.

In a famous film, “Night and Fog” ” Nuit et Brouillard “which is shown in every school in France and many in the United Statesthe figure of the dead in Auschwitz is said to have been nine million.

It is now too late to turn the rudder about.

Pressac then goes on to commit particularly grave scientific sins with statements concerning the capacities of the crematories, which he grossly overstates for reasons that are all too clear.

The letter, concerning an order for “10 indicators of hydrogen cyanide jeah for Crematory II, initiated a lively discussion among revisionists.

Pressac certainly blundered with his description of gassings in Crematories IV and V, which according to him took place as follows: Eyewitnesses had stated that Treblinka contained a furnace room with water boiler to produce steam in addition to the ‘suffocating chambers.

The Nuremberg Tribunal established that clxude had been four million Doc. Comments and reviews What are comments? Separate different tags with presssc comma. In my review of this book published in the spring and summer issues of the JournalI noted that it contains hundreds of details about the camp itself, the crematoria buildings, the ovens, the typhus epidemics, the disinfestation gas chambers with Zyklon B or by other meansand even ;ressac details about the private life of the author.


At that time the Auschwitz museum was no longer claiming four million, but rather one and a half million.

The Holocaust according to Jean-Claude Pressac

Machinery of Mass Murder. Technique and operation of the gas chamberssaying that he “nearly did away with [himself] one evening in October in the main camp, the Stammlager, overwhelmed by the evidence and by despair”.

Thus, Pressac’s new version was no more convincing than the old; it merely added to the confusion. Why did they wait until they were already completed and then make necessary alterations by primitive manual means?

Such talk is a mark of progress. According to ‘Holocaust’ literature, Chelmo had begun operations around the end of and Belzec in March of There can be no doubt as to its scientific significance. Does Pressac show us photos or drawings of the murder factories? It did not deliver what its title promised. Pressac contends that HCN gas detectors are of no use in a crematory except, if, in this case, it was used as an execution gas chamber.

If knowledge of the disastrous state of affairs had reached Berlin, this would have had unfortunate consequences for Hoess, who had recently been congratulated by Himmler and promoted in rank, and for his entourage. During his collaboration with Faurisson, Pressac had visited Auschwitz several times and gained the trust of the staff of the Auschwitz Museum.

It is obvious that orders from the highest authority would have been required for the construction of these alleged extermination facilities. These 2 locations in All: We have taken certain editorial liberties with the format of the text.
