   Letter from SS-Sturmbannfuehrer Jahrling to Topf & Sons, March 6 
   1943  [Pressac, p. 221]
   Subject: KL Auschwitz Krematorien II and III

   In accordance with your suggestion, the service agrees that cellar 1
   should be preheated with the air coming from the rooms of the 3
   forced draught installations. The supply and installation of the
   ductwork and blowers necessary to this end are to be effected as soon
   as possible. As you point out in your above-mentiond letter,
   execution should commence this week. We would ask you to send in
   triplicate detailed quote for supply and installation.

   At the same time, we would ask you to send an additional quotation
   for the modification of the air-extraction installation in the
   undressing room.
