Auschwitz conveyor belt history - the forgotten lie once emphasized over gas chambers

Thanks to: Winston Smith

The Soviets liberated the Auschwitz camps on January 27, 1945, and the first detailed post-liberation report was penned by Russian Jew Boris Polevoi, who claimed to have explored the camps. His piece was entitled "The  Factory of Death at Auschwitz" and was published in the Soviet newspaper Pravda on Feb 2, 1945.

Before making a brief reference to the gas chambers being reconstructed by the Soviets to look like garages, propagandist Polevoi studiously details:
"the electric conveyor belt, on which hundreds of people were simultaneously electrocuted, their bodies falling onto the slow moving conveyor belt which carried them to the top of the blast furnace where they fell in, were completely burned..."

The late Jean-Claude Pressac, one of the primary authorities of Holocaust history, says tour guides were still telling death camp tourists this tale in 1966.

xtracts of Polevoi's electrocution conveyor-belt story were in the British press (Feb 3, 1945), New Zealand press (Feb 3, 1945), the American press (Feb 2, 1945), and the Canadian press on, Feb 2, 1945:
