for the case of "Holocaust revisionism", was struggling to
explain the mention of a "gas chamber" in the construction
documents of one of the Auschwitz-Birkenau crematoriums.
He suggested that the foreman put it there as a "joke"; see
"He says he tamped the ground and concreted the floor in the gas
chamber: 'betonieren in der Gaskammer'. This entry #5 on said work
report is from file BW 30/28, page 28 (p. 446) in the Auschwitz
archives. In the absence of other documentation, it means nothing and
will remain an enigma. It, however, may be a joke. This foreman and
his crew had been working here for a number of days and perhaps he or
someone in his crew was flatulent during that period. I'm sure these
people were no different than most construction workers, and he may
have put this in the daily report as a joke".
