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, a newspaper reported Saturday.

The daily Bild published copies of some of the 28 plans, which the head of Germany’s federal archives, Hans-Dieter Krekamp, called “authentic proof of the systematically planned genocide of the Jews of Europe.”

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.

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 under way, had a gas chamber clearly labelled, Bild said.

Another showed a crematorium with places for ovens marked, and storage space for bodies.

The “final solution to the Jewish question”, namely the extermination of Jews living in Nazi-occupied Europe in what became known as the Holocaust, was decided by officials of Adolf Hitler’s regime in January 1942 at a conference in the Berlin suburb of Wannsee.

More than one million Jews, gypsies and others deemed “subhumans” by the Nazis were killed at Auschwitz, near the Polish city of Kracow, out of a total six million slaughtered up to the fall of the regime in 1945.

Advancing Soviet troops liberated Auschwitz in January 1945, but camp authorities had blown up the gas chambers, and Holocaust deniers have claimed there was no proof of the camp’s purpose.

Blueprints for Auschwitz camp found in Germany

By Erik Kirschbaum

BERLIN, Nov 8 (Reuters) - The original construction plans believed used for a major expansion of the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz in 1941 have been found in a Berlin flat, Germany’s Bild newspaper reported on Saturday.

The daily printed three architect’s drawings on yellowing paper from the batch of 28 pages of blueprints it obtained. One has an 11.66 metre by 11.20 metre room marked “Gaskammer” (gas chamber) that was part of a “delousing facility”.

No one from the federal government’s archives was immediately available for comment on the authenticity or importance of the documents.

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.

The mass-circulation newspaper quoted Hans-Dieter Kreikamp, head of the federal archives office in Berlin, as saying the blueprints offered “authentic evidence of the systematically planned genocide of European Jews.”

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 at the Wannsee Conference 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 Oct. 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.

Wat willen ze nu met deze papieren doen? Dient dit nog als bewijslast of is het meer een historisch document?

Hmm, dat denk ik ook. Tegen het einde van de Tweede Wereldoorlog hebben veel duitsers hun documenten vernietigd. Bijzonder dat ze nu nog dingen kunnen vinden

Vragen die in mij opkomen:

- wie heeft ze gevonden?
- waar zijn ze gevonden?
- wanneer zijn ze gevonden?
- hoe zijn ze gevonden?
- van wie was het appartement?
- wie heeft ze authentiek verklaard?
- zijn er vergelijkbare documenten?
