In March 1992, prominent Austrian engineer Walter Lüftl
came in the news when he published a report in which he stated that stories about the destruction of Jews in the gas chambers of Auschwitz and Mauthausen "are technically impossible because they defy the laws of nature".
After Zyklon B exposure, about 92 percent of the gas consists of hydrogen cyanide and therefore hydrogen cyanide still continues to be released, Lüftl noted.
So you have to ventilate for a very long time if you do not want to cause massive deaths outside the gas chambers, he said.
Lüftl also wrote in his report that mass killing with diesel exhaust gases is impossible.
He concluded that stories about gas chambers with diesel engines such as in Treblinka should be seen as disinformation.
"The laws of nature apply to both Nazis and anti-fascists," the engineer said. "No one can be killed by diesel exhaust gases in the way described in the literature."
Lüftl received support from the American engineer Friedrich Paul Berg
, who said that a diesel gas chamber is not an effective way to commit mass murder.
On the basis of his own research, Berg concluded that evidence of gassing in German concentration camps is unsatisfactory.
Other scientists have also claimed that there were no gas chambers in the German concentration camps.
The late William B. Lindsey
, a chemist who worked for DuPont for 33 years, testified in the Zündel case in 1985 that mass gasification in the camps was "technically impossible".
Dr. Lindsey investigated the gas chambers of Auschwitz, Birkenau and Majdanek and said: “I have come to the conclusion that no one has been deliberately killed in this way with Zyklon B. That is absolutely impossible”.
The aerial photos
In 1979, the US government released a whole series of aerial photos of Auschwitz and Birkenau that were taken in 1944, when they were fully operational. The photos are so sharp that you can even distinguish vehicles and people.
In the photos, however, there are no piles of bodies, smoking chimneys of crematoria or long rows near the gas chambers.
Carlo Mattogno writes in his book "Auschwitz: the end of a legend"
about aerial photos that the Allies took of Birkenau on 31 May 1944:
Carlo Mattogno wrote:An average of 7,800 people were [allegedly] gassed every day, but there is no evidence of this massacre in the photos: no traces of smoke, no traces of mass graves, no traces of crematoriums and no traces of activity or vehicles around Crematoria II, III and V or Bunker 2.
In 1989 German aerial photographs were found in the American national archive that were taken in 1944 from the Treblinka extermination camp. The photos show that Treblinka was an extremely small camp, far too small for the hundreds of thousands of bodies allegedly buried there.
The aerial photos also show that the meadows where Polish farmers cultivated their crops were adjacent to the camp.
Geologist John C. Ball has analysed aerial photos taken from Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka, Belzec, Sobibór, Majdanek and Babi Jar.
“To this day, there is no photo evidence for the massacre of the Jews at any location in the part of Europe occupied by the Germans during the Second World War”.
