Forensic Research

History has three legs to stand on: witness accounts, documents, and, least corruptible, material traces of objects and events. The latter are the focus of forensic research. When it comes to the mass murder of six million civilians in central Europe within the years 1941-1944, one would expect not only a vast amount of material traces of such a butchery, but also, and most certainly, a large amount of field work carried out in order to investigate any such evidence. Yet orthodox scholars never troubled themselves with this kind of fundamental inquiry, at least until revisionists started rocking the boat. Here are listed papers dealing with forensic investigation of the (alleged) traces of the Holocaust.



On August 28, 2002, Sven Felix Kellerhoff of the German daily newspaper Die Welt expressed his anger about the semi-revisionist theories of Fritjof Meyer, a leading editor of Germany’s largest news magazines Der Spiegel. In 2002, Meyer had published an article, in which he reduced the death toll of Auschwitz …

It is well known that several witnesses from Auschwitz describe cremation pits equipped with a system for the recovery of human fat flowing down off the human bodies into appropriate fat recovery pits or ditches from which it was drawn off by means of buckets and thrown back on the …

1) The empty arguments of Father Patrick Desbois Father Patrick Desbois, an ardent champion of Judeo-Christian "friendship" and Chairman of the Yahad-In Unum Association, has acquired a certain notoriety in recent years due to his search for the mass graves of Jews murdered by the Einsatzgruppen in the Ukraine and …

Arguably the most important of all Revisionist studies, The Leuchter Report: An Engineering Report on the Alleged Execution Gas Chambers at Auschwitz, Birkenau and Majdanek, Poland celebrates the twentieth anniversary of its publication this year. Although most revisionists are familiar with the background of this trailblazing work, a brief review …

Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter Jr., a film by Errol Morris. With its premier at the Toronto Film Festival in 1999, presaged by a degree of consternation and controversy,[1] Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter Jr., is now circulating among …

Ask anyone in the UK who has heard of the Leuchter Report and you can be fairly sure they will tell you the same thing: it has been ‘discredited.’ But –“behold, O Dionysus,” as Nietzsche would have said, “I sing a new song”: there are two different references we need …

The Provan study provides for us much more than a telling material study of the concrete ruins of Leichenkeller I of Krematorium II. It is also a valuable compendium of what can only be described as untrustworthy witness descriptions of the necessary "Zyklon B introduction holes" and of the questionable …

(Widmann studied English and Statistics at major American universities. He is an occasional contributor to Smith's Report and is currently co-Webmaster of CODOHWeb.) A major event for revisionism in the world of the Internet occurred in October. John Ball, author of Air Photo Evidence and The Ball Report, has brought …

Conrad Grieb is working on a story about the last poison gassing of an American citizen. David Lawson was executed on June 15, 1994 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Lawson didn’t want to die and refused to cooperate with his executioners. When the cyanide was released in his execution chamber Lawson …

In March 1992, a prominent Austrian engineer made headlines when a report he had written about alleged German wartime gas chambers was made public. Walter Lüftl concluded in his controversial report, "Holocaust: Belief and Facts," that the well-known stories of mass extermination of Jews in gas chambers at the wartime …

Believe it or not, there's good news for revisionists out of Switzerland. On September 9 a Swiss court acquitted a Swiss revisionist of "racial discrimination" for disseminating German revisionist Germar Rudolf's forensic report detailing the absence of evidence for homicidal gassing at Auschwitz and Majdanek. Even better, the court made …

Something about gas is . . . creepy. Often, you can't see it. Supposedly, you can't run from it (not so, but it can be hard to tell which way to run). If it "gets" you, it doesn't leave visible marks, whether it kills you or not (again, effectively not …

In the immediate after-war period, it was widely believed that Nazi extermination camps existed in Germany and Poland. The barbaric Allied saturation bombing,[1] which had led to the collapse of the German transportation, food-distribution and medical networks, provoked a chaos exacerbated by the arrival of millions of refugees …

Acknowledgment This study was made possible through the generosity of Director Jerzy Wróblewski of the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum in Oswiecim, Poland who kindly provided a small number of Zyklon-B pellets to the Holocaust History Project for physical and chemical analysis.[1] Our thanks also to Dr. Franciszek Piper, Chief Historian; …

In 1988, Fred Leuchter, American expert for execution technologies, investigated the alleged gas chambers of Auschwitz and Majdanek and concluded that they could not have functioned as claimed. Ever since, Leuchter’s claims have been attacked. In 1993, Rudolf, a researcher from the prestigious Max Planck Institute, published a thorough forensic …

The “Holocaust” is often characterized as the greatest crime in the history of mankind. Yet for 44 years not a single forensic investigation into this alleged crime has ever been undertaken. This changed in 1988, when Fred A. Leuchter, at that time the only U.S. expert for execution technologies, was …

ABSTRACT: In a widespread campaign to deny the existence of extermination camps with gas chambers the “revisionists” have recently started using the results of the examinations of fragments of ruins of former crematoria. These results (Leuchter, Rudolf) allegedly prove that the materials under examination had not been in contact with …

Orthodox Holocaust scholars challenge revisionists to show them one Jew, one single Jew, who was deported through any of the so-called Aktion Reihardt Camps and survived. This paper opens up the chase...

Mainstream holocaust writer Jean-Claude Pressac spotted what he called a "Soviet put up job" - a clear attempt by the Soviet War Crimes Commission to falsely portray an ordinary delousing chamber in the Central Sauna section of Auschwitz-Birkenau as homicidal in nature. Much credit is due to him for this observation, however he failed to ask a critically important question: If there were real homicidal gas chambers a literal stone's throw away, why undertake an effort to fake this one? Pressac unfortunately does not appear to ask himself this question and passes over the significance of a Soviet hoax gas chamber with accompanying propaganda photo spread without a second thought. For photos of the faked gas chamber and Pressac's commentary, see http://www.holocaust-history.org/auschwitz/pressac/technique-and-operation/pressac0046.shtml and following pages.

If the Soviet War Crimes Commission faking a gas chamber isn't bad enough, it gets worse. There is a definite pattern here.

Between 1997 and 1999, Polish archeologist Professor Andrzej Kola carried out select excavations and probe drills at the former site of the Bełżec camp in eastern Poland, where allegedly 434,501 Jews (434,508 Jews were deported to the camp according to the so-called Höfle telegram, whereof 7 reportedly survived) were gassed …

In my previous posting on the recent excavations at the alleged extermination camp Sobibór I pointed out the incongruence between A. Kola's reported interpretations of findings made at the site and later claims made by among others the museal authorities in charge of the Sobibór memorial. I further examined various eyewitness …

Defenders of the Holocaust story have attempted to discredit scientific reports which disprove the existence of homicidal gas chambers at German camps during World War II. For example, Deborah Lipstadt’s defense attorney, Richard Rampton, referred in court to The Leuchter Report as “…a piece of so-called research which is not worth the paper it is written on…”

Dr. Richard Green states about Germar Rudolf:

“Owing to the fact that he actually has some understanding of chemistry, many of his deceptions are more sophisticated than other Holocaust deniers. […] Ultimately, he engages in the same deceptions and specious arguments as [Fred] Leuchter and [Walter] Lüftl , but the case he makes for those deceptions and arguments involves more difficult chemistry.”

This article will discuss attempts by chemists to discredit scientific reports which disprove the existence of homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz/Birkenau during World War II.

I have survived carbon-monoxide poisoning, more than once. My latest carbon-monoxide poisoning was caused by an improperly installed stove ventilation fan located next to a natural-gas hot-water heater. This latest CO poisoning was the most severe. From my experience of being “gassed,” I have several observations pertaining to “Holocaust gassing” …

During WW2 German and Allied aircraft took countless air photos, which today are evidence when investigating the Holocaust. Photos of Auschwitz, Majdanek, Treblinka, Babij Yar etc. permit an insight into what happened there. This book is full of air photo reproductions and schematic drawings explaining them. These images refute many of the atrocity claims made by witnesses in connection with events in the German sphere of influence. 3rd, corrected and expanded edition...

An exhaustive technical study of cremation technology in general and of the cremation furnaces used at Auschwitz and Birkenau in particular. Next to the alleged "gas chambers," these furnaces are claimed to have been the main "weapon of crime" said to have destroyed the traces of up to a million murdered individuals. On a sound and thoroughly documented base of technical literature, extant wartime documents and material traces, Mattogno reveals the true hygienic function, i.e. the benign nature of the cremation furnaces of Auschwitz… 

Auschwitz was a center of chemistry. The German chemical industry built gigantic factories for rubber and fuel, and the SS experimented with natural sources of rubber. But that's not what we associate with the name "Auschwitz." We think of gas chambers and Zyklon B, two chemical things as well. How did the gas chambers look like? How did they operate? What was Zyklon B? How does it kill? Did it leave traces that can be found still today? These and other questions are thoroughly examined. Full-color edition.

Stunning video documentary accompanying the book The Chemistry of Auschwitz, investigating Auschwitz as a center of chemistry: Buna rubber, fuel production, poison-gas chambers and Zyklon B... Revised edition of December 9, 2018
