[back] Auschwitz-Birkenau Birkenau 'gas chamber' (Krema II, Krema III, Krema IV and Krema V)
Photographs of Birkenau's Krema II, Morgue I (1993)
LEFT SIDE PHOTO: Alleged Zyklon B vent in the roof of the morgue ("gas chamber") of Krema II. The steel reinforcement rods in the concrete were never even removed. They were simply bent apart and back.
LEFT SIDE PHOTO: Inside photo looking outward from the ruins of Morgue I (gas chamber) at Krema II. This is where Rudolf took samples from the masonry. In contrast to the delousing installation, there is no blue pigment on the walls and ceiling.
LEFT SIDE PHOTO: The outside wall of the hydrocyanic acid delousing installation of building BW 5b is intensely blue in color from the effects of HCN. With time, the cyanide penetrated the walls and reacted with iron to form the pigment, unaffected by 50 years of weathering.
