4th Leuchter Report


After reviewing this document, "Auschwitz: Technique and operation of the gas chambers" by Jean-Claude Pressac, I have some observations to make in summary.

29.001 Mr. Pressac is, presumably, a man of science, but fails to show it. At times he reasons clearly, but in the final analysis, he tries to make the facts conform to his preconceived notion of the existence of the gas chambers. He fails.

29.002 Jean-Claude Pressac has given the world a great deal of evidence, all of which fails to prove the existence of the gas chambers. Perhaps this will be enough.

29.003 After seeing his technical documentation, it is my best engineering opinion that nothing in this documentation supports the existence of gas execution chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Further, based upon the detail design of the Kremas, so well documented here, I can unequivocally state that the Gas Chambers did not exist: Kremas I, II, III, IV and V could NOT EVER have supported a gas execution function and did not.

29.004 Kremas I, II, III, IV, and V were not, and did not contain Gas Execution facilities.

Prepared this 17th day of October 1991.
