My Gusen thread turned into a bit of a mess; but the tally list for Gusen as supplied by Bob was:
I've made a few markups to it.
If one were to just look at the tally for 11/7/41 one sees that the double muffle gas cremation ovens which were converted to run on gasified coke cremated 94 adult corpses (there were only adults at Gusen) in no more than 33 hours (11/6/41 22:15 to 11/8/41 07:00). I think these cremations were done in about 25 hours; but it took AT MOST 33 hours. 94 cremations in 33 hours in 2 muffles is about 40 minutes (42 minutes actually) per corpse per muffle. The procedure outlined in the Topf manual has a new corpse inserted into the muffle after the first one drops through the grate, and therefore there is about 20 minutes of overlap there where essentially 2 corpses are being cremated together. Each body would average about 60 minutes to cremate, but there's a 20 minute overlap; hence about a 40 minute average. This is the slowest possible cremation rate for that particular tally day (11/7/41).
I am of the opinion that those 94 corpses were cremated in about 25 hours - implying an average cremation rate of about 32 minutes per corpse per muffle.
Given that this Gusen oven was a gas oven converted to run on gasified coke, the Revisionist claim (as, for instance, made by David Irving in his Lipstadt trial) that the average coke use per corpse is the average used for this oven is quite suspect. This is not a coke oven we're talking about here. This is a gas oven using gasified coke. One would think that the gasification step creates an inefficiency.
Just getting straight what the Gusen tally sheet was, what the oven setup was, ... etc made that Gusen thread
of mine a real mess. I thought about putting a cleaned up discussion in "Formal Propositions" part of the board; but haven't gotten around to it (and probably won't).
being cremated: that'd take a negligible amount of time. How it factors into overall cremation times is negligible as well though. There were not a significant number of infants cremated in the Holocaust. Dealing with averages (which would include women, children, infants of course) is what is done when discussing large numbers of cremations. The large numbers makes it much much more efficient, as stated again and again in Mattogno's treatments of the subject (surprisingly so to me actually). The averages go WAY down when done in large numbers. Asking how long a single cremation of a single infant would take is very misleading. It would actually take a long time to fire up a cremation oven and cremate a single corpse. A single cremation is orders of magnitude less efficient than an ongoing mass-cremation process.
