  • Majdanek is one of the 6 extermination camps in Poland. It was my first visit to an extermination camp. Auschwitz/Birkenau was to come later on my trip. There are a few things that really stick out from my visit to Majdanek. One is standing inside the gas chamber and still being able to see the blue on the walls from...

    , also called the "Red House" because of its red, unplastered walls, was located at the north borderof the Birkenau camp, at the later construction section III. The building measured about 15 x 6 m and originally had four rooms, which were now converted into two gas chambers. Each room had a door, and the windows were sealed with bricks. For the introduction of the gas, each of the two rooms had two openings (about 30 x 40 cm) in the outer walls which could be closed with gas-tight flaps. The doors were made air-tight with felt, and could beadditionally tightened with screws. Signs ("to disinfection") were posted at the doors. Inside the gas chambersthe walls were painted white, and the floor was covered with sawdust after each gassing. Because a ventilationsystem was not installed, the aeration took a long time. In the beginning, the gassings were carried out at night,later in the daytime as well because of too many and too unpunctual transports. Each gas chamber could contain up to400 victims. The corpses were buried in mass graves nearby.

    I read alot about the subject of the Holocaust but this story is a much different look on it considering most people that worked in the gas chambers were killed after a point of working in that part. So you see read about a man that worked and saw everything from the people going inside the gas chambers to him having to pull them out.. very sad but also very good. I havent read anything like it with all the stories i have read before. Highly recommended this book.

    Very sad, but informing on what went on inside the gas chambers (clearly). Includes pictures and information about Shlomo after everything happened. By far the best book I've read this year.

    The problem is that there are so many visitors to Auschwitz today that no one is allowed to walk around in the gas chamber and get a good look at the holes, as I was able to do in 2005. The photo below shows what visitors now see when they go inside the gas chamber.

The modification consisted of essentially removing some partitioningwalls inside the gas chamber, which were added as a common feature ofbomb shelters. Nonetheless, this is the room in which people weregassed; there are still traces of cyanide on its walls, as Leuchteradmits (he found traces in 6 of 7 samples).
