Mauthausen gas chamber

Postby Oozy_Substance » Sun Jan 28, 2018 9:58 am

Pictures of the Mauthausen gas chamber can be seen here.

To my understanding it's one of three surviving gas chambers, other two being in Majdanek and Natzweiler-Struthof.
Please correct me if I am wrong about it.

Anyway, one denier pointed out to me that Yehuda Bauer, the Holocaust historian, claims there were no gassing in Mauthusen.
This denier article deals this matter :

On page 209 Bauer makes the offhand remark that no gassings took place at Mauthausen However, he gives no inkling of how he arrived at this revisionist conclusion regarding Mauthausen.


But Yehuda Bauer implies such witnesses were lying when he asserts that “no gassings took place at Mauthausen.” In fact, Bauer's statement implies that all the testimonies about gassings at Mauthausen are false, including those of ex-inmate Johann Kanduth, ex-SS-guard Alois Hoellriegel and camp commandant Franz Ziereis.


Does anyone have insights about this matter?

Scrapbookpages is a Holocaust denial website. It is not recommended to rely on it.

Yehuda Bauer, whatever he wrote, is not a specialist on Mauthausen.
These guys are:

B. Perz, F. Freund, "Tötungen durch Giftgas im Konzentrationslager Mauthausen" in G. Morsch, B. Perz (Hrsg.), Neue Studien zu nationalsozialistischen Massentötungen durch Giftgas. Historische Bedeutung, technische Entwicklung, revisionistische Leugnung, 2012 (2.Aufl.), S. 244ff.
F. Freund, "Tötungen durch Giftgas in Mauthausen und Gusen" in B. Bailer, W. Benz, W. Neugebauer (Hrsg.), Wahrheit und "Auschwitzlüge". Zur Bekämpfung "revisionistischer" Propaganda, 1995, S. 119ff.

I believe Mattogno or Rudolf state that Baur claims his made a mistake on gassings at Mauthausen in one of their books. From memory it's into the gas chambers which was indented to be some type of refutation to « Neue Studien zu nationalsozialistischen Massentötungen durch Giftgas ».

I know Scrapbookpages is a denier website but this specific article seems not to question the gas chamber and it contains a lot of information, so I brought it up.

I would recommend ignoring the nonsense posted on her website. You would be better off relying on Nizkor then her site, while ignoring that Nizkor is rather outdated. Shermer talks about the Mauthausen gas chamber rather briefly. It would help you if you bought the book he cites.
