Oh, golly, Greg! You don't seem to have all four paws on the mouse
today.  You've selected one line out of context o make your point.  I
have a copy of the Black Book, too, and on the page you cite, the line
you quote appears  after:


Careful Estimate of the number of Jews Gassed in Birkenau Between April
1942 and April 1944 (according to coutnries of origin)

Poland  aprox 900,000
Holland        100,000
Greece          45,000
France         150,000
Belgium         50,000
Germany        60,000
Yugoslavia, Italy, Norway 50,000
Lithuania        50,000
Bohemia, Moravia, Austria, Slovakia 30,000
Various foreign Jews concentrated in Poland 300,000

Total            1,765,000

    Four million Jews--about two-thirds of the six-million who perished
in Europe at the hands of the Nazis--weremurdered at Oswiecim and its
subsidiary camps.


Did you get that, Greg?  Gassing victims (which, as I understand it is the
part you question) number 1,765,000.  Considering this number was
developed in 1946, this is a pretty good estimate.  It's not too far off
>from  the numbers Hilberg came up with later, for instance.  

The four million number, you'll note reflects ALL deaths in ALL camps
and subsidiary camps at Osweicim.  SInce there were about 1400 work
and slave labor camps all over the place, this is not too far off the
mark.
