Berlin, Germany - Original Plans for Auschwitz Found

One of the barracks and a watch tower are seen in the former Nazi death camp Auschwitz in Oswiecim, poland, January 12, 2007.

Berlin, Germany - Original plans for the construction of the Nazi extermination camp of Auschwitz, including a gas chamber and crematorium, have been found in a Berlin apartment.

The daily printed three architect’s drawings of yellowing paper from the batch of 28 pages of blueprints it obtained. One has an 11.66 meter by 11.20 meter room marked “Gaskammer” (gas chamber) that was part of a “delousing facility,” which the head of Germany’s federal archives, Hans-Dieter Krekamp, called “authentic proof of the systematically planned genocide of the Jews of Europe”.

The plans, published ahead of the 70th anniversary of the “Kristallnacht” or the Nazi pogrom that was a harbinger of the Holocaust, also include a crematorium and a “L. Keller”—an abbreviation for “Leichenkeller” or corpse cellar.

A drawing of the building for Auschwitz’s main gate was also found in the documents that Bild said were believed to have been discovered when a Berlin flat was cleaned out.

Bild gave no indication of where, when or by whom the plans were found.
It said they were dated between 1941 and 1943 and stamped, “Waffen-SS and Police Construction Directorate”. Some were signed by senior SS officials and one initialled by the head of the Nazi ideological corps, Heinrich Himmler. Mr Kreikamp told the newspaper the documents were “extraordinarily important”.

One plan, drawn by a detainee as early as November 1941, when experiments in eliminating prisoners were already underway, had a gas chamber clearly labelled, Bild said.
Another showed a crematorium with places for ovens marked, and storage space for bodies.

There were mass killings of about one million Jews before the Nazi’s “Final Solution” was formulated in late 1941. The decision to kill Europe’s 11 million Jews was made by officials of Adolf Hitler’s regime at a conference at the the Berlin suburb of Wannsee in January 1942.

A copy of the minutes, known as the “Wannsee Protocol,” is one of the most important documents from the war.

The newly found Auschwitz blueprints are dated October 23 1941 and could offer historians earlier evidence of Nazi plans to kill Jews on a mass scale, Bild said.

“These documents reveal that everyone who had even anything remotely to do with the planning and construction of the concentration camp must have know that people were to be gassed to death in assembly-line fashion,” Bild wrote.

“The documents refute once and for all claims by those who deny the Holocaust even took place,” it added.

The concentration camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland was the largest—at least 1.1 million Jews were killed there.

Auschwitz I was set up in May 1940 in an old Polish army barracks. The first victims were gassed in September 1941. Auschwitz II, or Birkenau, opened in October 1941. Four large gas chambers were added to the camp in January 1942.

The blueprints were totally unnecessary. Anyone can go to Auschwitz and have a tour of the whole area, including all the rebuilding done by the Soviets. Just ask the museum staff for a tour!

Can someone please explain why a piece of evidence that is crucial to the original claims of what happened in WW2 would take SIXTY FOUR years to come to light, and not by any government body or academic institution, but by some NEWSPAPER????

We, the children of the Holocaust survivors don't even need that! We feel it in our hearts! We heard the firsthand recounting from our parents and felt as if we were there!
Some fancy, revisionist psychologists might cringe in their [comfortable] swivel chairs and remark that our parents were wrong in traumatizing [young] children. The answer to that argument is, that no one was traumatized but the scenes were well absorbed, and the lessons [hopefully] learned!!!

I would wager that these "blueprints" are a fake? Why? Because the German yemach shemom would never put "gas chambers" in writing. They always talked in euphemisms.

There is a BIG ERROR in the description of the blueprints. The German term used for "gas chambers" is LEICHENKELLER. The word "GAZKAMER" refers to disinfection rooms. Do some research!!!!!

The Soviets rebuilt the camp. They wanted to show the Germans in a bad light. The Communists were predominantly Jewish.

Maybe the top, original Bolsheviks were Jewish. Those that reigned the USSR after WWII certainly were not! The reason they made an effort to display the nazis in a bad light was not sympathy for their Jewish victims. Rather to be recognized as victims themselves, obscuring the fact that the single major perfidious act by the Soviets is what [actually] triggered the Second World War. Namely, the Ribbentrop-Molotov [non-aggression] Pact!!!

The importance of the documents is great, given the denials of the holocaust and the 'intention' of the construction. The plans, if authenticated are damning.
The deniers will still find darkness in light, and good in evil...the truth is not in them and they cannot recognize it.
More importantly is the LOCATION that these plans were found, i.e. the flat or apartment. Why is this location being withheld. If this was in a Wannsee Berlin Apartment, then this may be directly tied to the Grand Mufti. The Grand Mufti resided in a Berlin apartment, and he and Eichmann were the creators of the Holocaust. It was the Grand Mufti that wanted the extermination of the Jews. Is resident of the apartment more condemning then the blue prints???? I think so, I have a hunch.

What was the address of this apartment in which these were found? It is very important.
