Auschwitz 2: The Pond of Ashes





"The pond of ashes" to the right is Krema 4
..
Jacob Bronowski famously claimed in 1973:
"Into this pond were flushed the ashes of some four million people." 
..
In 1996 Alan Jacobs claimed:
"Into this pond were dumped the ashes of many tens of thousands of people," 



In the memory
of the men, women, and children
who fell victim to the Nazi genocide
In this pond lie their ashes
May their souls rest in peace

  3. What proof is there that this pond contains even 0.1% human ash? Sorry to sound a bit sceptical but I'm genuinely curious.

    1. You don't need proof when you have faith Franz.

      And if you don't have faith, the Inquisition will be after you.

  4. Strange..I was sure that most of the ashes ended as fertilizer on fields around the camp...

  5. Pond of ashes is a hoax...can you imagine a few hundred thousand corpses ashes in a pond that size? it would be half a mountain in size.
