Vistula pollution

Post by Huntinger »

It is claimed that thousands of people were gassed per day at Birkenau which is some 2km from the Vistula river in Poland. The claim is that 2000 people were locked in an enclosed chamber where a short time later cyanide gas was introduced in the form of ZyklonB. 1.1 million people are said to have perished this way. This is 550 alleged gassing events using about 10kg of Zyklon B per event. This is 5 500kg (5.5 tonne) of Zyklon B and a huge amount of cyanide contained within this amount. Cyanide is readily soluble in water and would readily dissolve in any available water. If not properly disposed off it would leach into the water table and into the nearby streams and rivers.

Several thousand people give off a lot of water vapor with vapor pressure being reached quickly. Calculations show that in chambers the size of Birkenau morgues about 70kg of liquid water would be on the walls and people due an inability to evaporate to the outside. 70kg of water with all those gassing events amounts to 38 tonne of highly toxic water. Cyanide is highly soluble and would rapidly dissolve in this water. It is claimed the chambers were sluiced after each gassing to get rid of the Juden excrement, and with this sluicing the toxic water would enter the waster disposal system which would end up in both the water table and the Vistula rivers.
Major cities downstream use the water from the Vistula for their water supply and yet there is no evidence of cyanide poisoning or even dead fish. The camp probably used the water from the water table for drinking water.

Using the forced air circulation system as Zb was designed for on clothes is different as the water is evaporated and the Zb is spent. Both the water vapor and the gas are harmlessly dispersed into the atmosphere.

I doubt the diluting effects of the Vistula would make the water suitable for drinking once cyanide was added, especially about 38 tonne in a few years. Hydrogen Cyanide dissolved has a half life of 3 years, which means in any estuaries there would be significant concentrations of the compound. The Vistula ends in a delta estuary that enters the Baltic Sea near the port of GdaΕ„sk.

Are there any reports of significant cyanide build ups in this estuary, unexpected loss of marine life, people reporting sick?
