The Truth about the Gas Chambers. A Unique Testimony  , which I shall examine from a historical point of view, including from the point of view of his prior statements. We lacked the courage to discuss these matters. But at a certain point, faced with certain facts, we decided that it was necessary.
When I got out of the hospital, I found myself with a Jew and I began to speak. All at once, I realized that, instead of looking at me, someone behind me was looking and making signs. I turned around and saw one of his friends who told him by means of gestures that I was completely crazy.
From that moment I no longer wished to speak. Only in , forty-seven years after my liberation, did I begin to speak about it. The problem of anti-Semitism began to appear in Italy and swastikas were always to be seen on walls… In December I returned to Auschwitz for the first time. Today, when I feel well, I feel the need to testify, but it is difficult. I am a very exact person, who loves things done well. When I go to speak in a school and the teacher has not sufficiently prepared his students, it wounds me deeply.
In another interview, after talking about anti-Semitic graffiti on walls in Rome, I stated:. These motivations are not very convincing. Venezia, in fact, inexplicably, has never made any official declaration, never made a sworn statement, never participated in any trial against his persecutors: not at the Eichmann Trial in Jerusalem April May , nor the Auschwitz Trial in Frankfurt December August , nor at the Auschwitz Trial in Vienna, against F.
Ertl and W. Dejaco January-March ; he has never contributed to the condemnation of his jailers, nor has he enlightened historians on the presumed process of extermination at Auschwitz. Why not? Just because a few know-it-alls might have thought he was crazy? At the beginning of the s, he granted an interview to the Israeli historian Gideon Greif, who published it in .
Venezia, born in Salonica Greece in , was apprehended in Athens on 25 March and later deported to Birkenau, which he reached in April. The witness was registered at Birkenau under number On 11 April there arrived at Auschwitz from Greece a transport of 2, jews, of whom men and women were registered . In the book, he mentions the exact number of inmates registered  , which he could not have known at the time.
It is therefore clear that this information is taken from the Auschwitz Kalendarium. Gabbai, of whom he speaks repeatedly, reached Auschwitz in the same transport and was registered under number  , but, according to him, men were selected upon arrival . He was obviously not familiar with D. Venezia tells as follows what happened upon his arrival at the camp:.
But the cousin, Y. Gabbai, described the same event quite differently:. This brothel was, on the contrary, intended exclusively for inmates.
A report of the Lagerarzt camp physician of Auschwitz Concentration Camp dated 16 December states in this regard:. Prior to their employment, the women were tested for Wa. These tests were repeated at regular intervals. The inmates are permitted access to the brothel every evening, after roll-call. An inmate physician always had to be present during visiting hours [to the brothel], as well as an inmate nurse, to carry out the sanitary measures ordered.
Vor ihrem Einsetzen wurden die Frauen auf Wa. Diese Untersuchungen werden in regelmässigen Abständen wiederholt. Der Zutritt ins Bordell ist den Häftlingen allabendlich, nach dem Appell gestatten.
Während der Besuchzeit ist immer ein Häftlingsarzt und Häftlingspfleger anwesend, die die angeordneten sanitären Massnahmen durchführen. Die Überwachung besorgt ein SS-Artz und ein S. The next day Venezia was sent to Birkenau BIIa camp, where they had to remain in quarantine for forty days.
He states that, a few days afterwards,. Then we had to drag it in place of the horses. When we opened the door, an atrocious odor took us by the throat: the stench of decomposing bodies. I had never passed by in front of that barracks before, and only then did I learn that it was used as a storage area for the bodies of inmates who had died during quarantine, before they were taken to the crematorium to be burnt.
A little group of prisoners spent the entire morning in the barracks recovering the bodies of those who had died during the night. In reality, there was no morgue in the BIIa quarantine camp. In the 19 barracks making up the camp, 14 were used to lodge the inmates, 3 contained lavatories and latrines, one contained an infirmary and one the kitchen. In April-May , 12 barracks were assigned to the inmate hospital; no barracks was used as a morgue .
On 4 August , SS-Sturmbannführer Karl Bischoff, head of the Zentralbauleitung , replied to SS-Hauptsturmführer Eduard Wirths, Auschwitz garrison physician, who had requested the construction of masonry morgues:. Mrugowski, over the course of the conversation on 31 July, declared that the bodies had to be carried into the morgues of the crematoria twice a day, in the morning and evening, to be exact. The separate construction of morgues in the individual subsections is therefore rendered superfluous.
On 25 May , Dr. Wirths sent a letter to Auschwitz camp commandant, in which he stated:. No known document attests to this linguistic usage. They did not normally come near, since the maintenance of order was entrusted to the Kapos. The officials stopped in front of our barracks and ordered the Kapos to form a line, as if for roll call. Every one of us had to declare our occupation and we knew to lie.
He thought that they would put him in a dental clinic to do the cleaning, at least it would have been warm. For myself, I was convinced that this would permit me to join the prisoners who worked in the Zentralsauna. I had seen that the work was not too difficult and they were in the warmth. But in his interview with Stefano Lorenzetto the number of men selected is given as 70 . The following is Y.
We had to parade naked. There we remained three weeks. One evening, when the first transports arrived from Hungary, they conducted another selection and Greeks were taken from our transport to special blocks, if I am not mistaken, nos. Since I knew German, my companions asked me to translate for them. Some days later, a young German arrived, about thirty years old, who spoke French.
He then told me that he needed strong men at the railway. This would therefore have happened around the middle of May Behind the grid there ran a picket fence three meters high. From outside, we could not see anything of what was happening inside, we saw only the top of the chimney. Hardly had we entered when the Kapo , so as to avoid confronting us with reality suddenly, told us to remain outside in the courtyard to pull up weeds and other work of this kind.
At a certain point I noticed that the building had a window as high as a man, and impelled by curiosity, I decided to see what was going on in that crematorium. I approached the window and saw a room full of dead people, so tangled up that at first I could not understand, not like those we had seen in the barracks  , but recently dead, not yet decomposed. The next day was 6 May The photographs in the Auschwitz Album taken later show in fact that this group of persons travelled up the Hauptstrasse Main Street bypassing Crematoria II and III, and through the Ringstrasse ring road ,  ending up in the little forest near the small lake located east of Crematorium IV .
The story of the picket fence is taken from F. Venezia obviously did not fully adhere to this passage, since he attributes to Crematorium II or III that which F. Recounted this may, the story is rather ingenuous, since along the entire outside perimeter of the crematorium there were no fewer than 47 windows the height of a man .
There were 47 windows to choose from! In the book, Venezia returns to the episode, writing:. In those days, they called it Crematorium I; they did not yet know of the existence of the first Crematorium at Auschwitz I. Three steps led to the interior, but instead of making us enter, the Kapo made us walk around it. One man from the Sonderkommando came to tell us what we were supposed to do: cut the weeds and clean the grounds a little.
This was not useful work; the Germans probably wanted to keep us under observation before making us work inside the Crematorium. When we returned the next day, they made us do the same things.
Although they had strictly prohibited it, impelled by curiosity I approached the building to see what was going on from the window. When I got close enough to have a look, I was paralyzed: on the other side of the window I saw piles of corpses, all on top of each other, bodies of persons who were still young.
I returned to my companions and told them what I had seen. They then went to look for themselves, carefully, without being noticed by the Kapo. They returned with their faces contorted, incredulous. They did not dare to think what could have happened. I note first of all that, in this version, the scene takes place at Crematorium II instead of Crematorium III. I add that the windows of the crematorium were double windows, and were all protected by an iron grid, non-negligible details which could not escape an outside observer.
But even if one wished to extend this function to Crematorium III and in May , it nevertheless extraordinarily remains the case that Venezia, among the 22 windows which opened into that facade of the crematorium, claims to have gone to have a look precisely through the pair of windows of the room in question.
For F. Müller, this area was used for the execution . They told us that the first night we were not supposed to work, only observe. I recall that towards in the afternoon, a transport arrived from Hungary . The old workers said that we new arrivals had to watch carefully, since within a few minutes they [the deportees] would no longer be alive.
We did not believe it. After a little while they order us to follow the workers downstairs, to see what was happening down there. This was now our work, we were told. For J. Sackar, S. Chasan and L. Woe to anybody who moved or said a word. We all stopped in a corner to wait. Suddenly we heard voices in the distance: there were entire families, with little children and grandparents.
They forced them to take their clothes off in a hurry. A truck arrived with the insignia of the Red Cross: an SS man got out, [and] using a device, opened a little window and allowed a can of stuff, about two kilos, to fall inside. He closed it and went away. Ten minutes afterwards, a door opened from the part facing the entranceway. The chief called to us to drag out the bodies. In reality, this presumed extermination installation, as I have shown in a specific study  , never existed.
Müller adds:. Dragon, was sub-divided into four areas, and had 4 exits and entrances, as well as 5 Zyklon B introduction ports.
For D. Paisikovic, on the other hand, it had 3 areas  , while based on the topographical survey of Auschwitz Museum dated 29 July , it had 7 areas . I would like to open a parenthesis here. But the witness F.
I will cite the essential passages:. Bunker 2 was a small farmhouse with the roof covered with leafy branches. In realty, according to the deposition of Sz. Dragon dated May  , the roof was of straw  , as confirmed on 10 August by D. Paisikovic . I would like to add that the drawing by Sz. Want to Read saving…. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

Marcello Pezzetti Consulenza storica. Quotes by Shlomo Venezia. As soon as I feel a little joy, something inside me closes up immediately. During his imprisonment he was forced to work in the Sonderkommando "special units" , teams of inmates that dealt with disposal and cremation of the prisoners killed in gas chambers. Venezia was subjected to the typical procedure of the deported to Auschwitz: shave, shower, the tattooing of the number on the left forearm, wearing the interned uniform.
At the end of the procedure Venezia was locked up in a separate and isolated section of the camp in quarantine, which - according to the German authorities in the camp - would have prevented the spread of epidemics inside the camp.
After only 20 days of 'quarantine' Venezia was assigned to the Sonderkommando of one of the large crematoria in Birkenau, made mainly of young and strong prisoners in good physical condition, because of the physical effort that the job required. Venezia was part of the Sonderkommando for six months.
In Auschwitz-Birkenau Venezia's mother and his two sisters were killed. As a guest on television, in schools, and at memorial events for the Holocaust, he turned his interest to young people as future spokespersons of the immense tragedy that struck Europe between and His experiences led Roberto Benigni to use him as a consultant, together with Marcello Pezzetti, for the film Life is Beautiful. Shlomo features throughout "Auschwitz - The Final Witness", a NY Festival winning film made by Sky for Channel 5 which reunited him with his Sonderkommando brother and cousin as they revisited the death camp together for the first time in over 50 years.
