In February of this year (1988), I was contacted by Dr. Robert Faurisson
for Mr. Ernst Zundel and asked to consider an assignment to investigate
and forensically evaluate the extant crematoria and alleged execution gas
chambers operated by the Nazis in Poland and to render an engineering opinion
as to their feasibility and efficacy.
After a meeting with Mr. Zundel, defense lawyer Douglas H. Christie and
staff members, in which the project was discussed, I was told that my findings
were to be used in conjunction with the case of the Queen v Zundel, then
before the District Court in Toronto.
Understanding this, it was determined that the investigation would
include Auschwitz, Birkenau and Majdanek (Lublin), and all associated crematoria
and alleged execution gas chambers. I accepted the assignment and on February
25, 1988, I led a party of investigators to Poland. This party consisted
of myself; my wife Carolyn Leuchter; Mr. Howard Miller, draftsman; Mr.
Jurgen Neumann, cinematographer; and Mr. Tijadar Rudolph, Polish language
interpreter. We returned on March 3, 1988 after inspecting all the required
facilities at Auschwitz, Birkenau and Majdanek. This report and my findings
are resultant to those investigations conducted in Poland.
