Since KnowItAll has brought up the mass graves and Nessie is always nattering about his unidentified excavator, let's take a closer look at those mass graves. Wiernik described them as being 10 meters deep, 25 meters wide and 50 meters long. Rajchman said that the graves were 12 meters deep, 30 meters wide and 50 meters long. Nobody mentions any trucks or other conveyances for hauling the excavated material away from the work site. Models of Treblinka by both Wiernik and Laponder show the graves with the excavated material stockpiled around the perimeter of the graves. That can't be argued.

Damp/wet sand has an angle of repose of 45 degrees. The gain (or "fluff") from excavating it is 12%. That's the amount of increase in the volume of damp/wet sand when it's loosened by excavation. Is everyone with me so far?

The volume of excavated material from one (1) meter of Wiernik's grave is therefore 1 X 10 X 25 plus the 12% gain. That is 280 cubic meters (m^3) of excavated material per meter of grave or 14,000 m^3 of ex for each grave. Since Wiernik's model shows a stockpile as wide and long as the grave, there is a minimum of 75 meters of stockpile. 14,000/75 = ~187 (186.667) m^3 of excavated material per meter of stockpile. Since the angle of repose is 45 degrees, the height of the stockpile can be determined by taking the square root of 187 (186.667) or 13.7 (13.662) meters. 13.662 meters is about 45 (44.824) feet high. The width of the base of the stockpile can be calculated by simply multiplying the height by 2 or ~27 (27.324) meters or ~90 (89.649) feet.

IOW, boys and girls, the models of Treblinka claiming to show the graves and the stockpiled ex are a bunch of horse frocky. Those numbers can be massaged to a limited degree but those are the base numbers with which you have to work. Run those numbers for Rajchman's graves and the stockpiles become even more absurd. To be accurate, Wiernik's model should have shown stockpiles almost four times as high as the gas chambers and wider than the graves themselves.

So, Nessie, what kind of a machine built those gargantuan stockpiles? Actually, no machine built those stockpiles. Those graves are nothing but figments of Wiernik's and Rajchman's imagination. They don't exist and never did.

No cremains, no graves, no holyhoax. Finito. End of story.
