And if MG would seriously do some research he would have found that his photo
above has simply an incorrect caption.

>From "After The Battle" mag., Nbr. 27, 1980, pages 1-29 by Andrew Mollo.  On
page 17 is the same photo, w/ this caption below:

Altough this picture, taken on April 30 by T/4 Sidney Blau, is captioned as the
gas chambers being examined by a Seventh Army soldier, they are in fact the
decontamination rooms for the clothing removed from the dead located at the
extreme western end of the crematorium building (on the left in the photo on
opposite page.)

A photo to the right states:

The same door today.

Both doors are hinged to the right ...

Another phot shows two soldiers, w/ this caption:

The actual gas chamber is examined by medical corpsmen of the 42nd 'Rainbow'
Division.  It was disguised as a shower room and the painted inscription
'Brausebad' remains above the entrance door (photo center right).

"The first thing I thought was, 'This guy just killed us.'" - LT Shane Osborn,
EP-3E command pilot, commenting 14 April 2001 regarding the 1 April mid-air.
