Dachau was NOT an extermination camp yet till today it is marketed as such. The crematorium was probably built to contain contagious diseases. I have looked though many of the photos and seen misleading titles and staged photos. Why have these ovens/furnaces not been efficiency tested and why has an international forensic review not been undertaken? Things that have been disproved such as the fatality figures at Auschwitz, Anne Franks Dairy (a fraud), making of soap and lampshades from Jewish remains...... The truth must be known, whatever it is but the "truth" keeps changing. What about the Gulags, should they not be given more or at least equivalent status? Whoever hosts sites like this need to have every aspect of every photo vetted for authenticity before attaching a heading to it. What is being done here is at best deceitful and worst bordering on criminal.
