The recent excavations at the Sobibór concentration camp—announced as “proof of the gas chambers” by the controlled media—are nothing of the sort and there is no evidence to show that these foundations are in fact “gas chambers”—and their layout completely contradicts all earlier “eye-witness reports” on the matter, according to Holocaust historian Peter Winter.
Writing in a blog post on his personal website, Winter, who is author of the best-selling work The Six Million: Fact or Fiction, said that “there is no evidence at all these foundations are actually those of ‘gas chambers.’”
This is, Winter continued, “simply an invention by the archeological team claiming to have found something that they themselves only ‘think’ and ‘believe’ are gas chambers. This bears repeating: there is no evidence at all to show that these foundations are actually those of gas chambers.
“Secondly, the shape of the walls and of the building completely contradict all previous ‘eye-witness accounts’ of ‘gas chambers’ at Sobibór. Either all the ‘eye-witnesses’ were lying, or they were “mistaken.’”
Winter continued: “Despite extensive media coverage of the find—and [Israeli archeologist Yoram] Haimi’s claims that these were the “gas chambers” of Sobibór, there is in reality no evidence that the unearthed foundations are anything else but a building at the camp.
“In fact, the unearthing of the foundations created more problems for the Holocaust Storytellers’ narrative than anything else.
“Previously, it had been claimed that there were three, four, or six “gas chambers” at Sobibór—but the September 2014 ‘discovery’ announced that there were now ‘apparently’ eight ‘gas chambers’—this based purely on the number of rooms unearthed in the foundations.
“Photographs of the 2014 excavation results shows an irregular-shaped building with at least seven differing sized rooms,” Winter wrote.
“This layout completely contradicts all previous narratives of the Sobibór ‘gas chambers’, which all claimed that the execution chambers worked with a two-door system and floor extensions on either side of the building. These ‘gas chambers’ were, according to the “old” narrative, all the same size (four meters square). On the one side of the ‘gas chambers,’ the Holocaust Storytellers claim, there was a ramp type affair used by the supposed victims to enter the “gas chambers” and, on the other side were supposedly larger doors through which the bodies were removed. As can be seen, the unearthed foundations bear no resemblance to this narrative,” Winter continied.
“The total lack of any confirming evidence was highlighted by media reports which were careful enough to put in their coverage that the archaeological team had unearthed what they “thought” were the ‘gas chambers.’
“For example, the Israeli Haaretz newspaper quoted Haimi as specifically saying that the unearthed foundations ‘apparently’ served as gas chambers: ‘We have finally found the building that apparently served as the gas chambers,’ said Israeli archaeologist Yoram Haimi, who has been coordinating excavations at the site for the past eight years” (‘Archaeologists uncover remnants of Sobibór gas chambers’, Haaretz, Sept. 17, 2014).
“Israel’s Y-net News also quoted Haimi as saying only that he ‘believed’ he had uncovered the gas chambers: ‘Up until now, we’ve been waiting for the asphalt to be removed for the construction of the new visitors center, and as soon as it was removed we found this big structure, that we believe housed the Sobibór camp’s gas chambers’ (‘Sobibór’s last survivor: There was no time to fear, only to live’, Ynet News, 09.18.14).
“In its coverage, the Reuters news agency also pointed out that the archaeologists ‘believed’ they had found the ‘gas chambers’: ‘Archaeologists excavated beneath the road and found lines of bricks, laid four deep, where they believe the walls of the gas chambers used to stand’ (‘Archaeologists uncover buried gas chambers at Sobibór death camp’, Reuters, Sep 18, 2014).
“The same Reuters article then produced another example of how the Holocaust narrative continually changes: it stated that prisoners were killed in ‘fifteen minutes with carbon monoxide gas,’ and—incredibly—that the Germans kept geese to hide the screams of the dying from other prisoners (!).
“The structure of the unearthed foundations—in a place where no-one disputes that there were buildings in the first place—is therefore totally at variance with the ‘murder facility’ claims.
“The media coverage given to these excavations is therefore, typically, completely false.”
Winter added that he “also noted with amusement that Ivar Schute from the Netherlands was part of this Sobibór archeological dig team. This is the same Schute who famously humiliated himself in public, along with Caroline Sturdy Colls, by completely misidentifying a Dziewulski i Lange porcelain factory mullet star as a “Star of David” in a comic—but pathetic—film claiming to have found the ‘gas chamber’ at Treblinka.
“The claims about the latest Sobibór “excavations” are clearly as bogus as Schute’s earlier fantasies about “gas chamber tiles” at Treblinka.”
In summary, Winter wrote, “there is no evidence at all these foundations are actually those of ‘gas chambers.’ This is simply an invention by the ‘archeological team’ claiming to have found something that they themselves—as evidence in the media coverage outlined above, only ‘think’ and ‘believe’ are gas chambers. This bears repeating: there is no evidence at all to show that these foundations are actually those of ‘gas chambers.’
“Secondly, the shape of the walls and of the building completely contradict all previous ‘eye-witness accounts’ of ‘gas chambers’ at Sobibór. Either all the ‘eye-witnesses’ were lying, or they were ‘mistaken’—or, as is more likely the case, the whole allegation of ‘gas chambers’ is made up,” Winter concluded.
