I can understand that you have not read everything, I have been written. 
I have stated several times that I have the information from an article by 
Ernst Zundel which apeared in the German magazine, Kritik from May 1988. 
The issue or rather booklet have the ISBN 87-87063-32-8 and is of course 
banned in STASI-Germany. On page 12 you can read the following:

"Er [Ivan Lagace] bewies anhand seiner Krematoriumsbuecher, dass nicht mehr  
als 3 Verbrennungen an einem Tage in einer Retorte vorgenommen werden 
koennen. Nach der ersten Verbrennung muss eine abkuehlungspause von 1 Stunde
eingelegt werden, weil sonst die neueingeschobenen Leichen infolge der 
ernormen Hitze explodieren und Feuer fangen wuerden. Das Resultat waere die
Zerstoerung des Krematoriums und ein beschleunigtes Zerspringen und Abbrechen
der feurfesten Auskleidung im Ofen. Eine neue Ofenausmauerung wuerde aber
das Krematorium fuer laenger als eine Woche ausfallen lassen und danach 
wuerde es einen Monat Dauern, bis sich der Ofenkomplex langsam einarbeitet
- mit nicht mehr als 2 Verbrennungen am Tage.

Are you able to prove that the above mentioned article does not exist,
lawyer Edeiken? 

I must however strongly emphasize that I do not necessarily agree with all
of the content in the above-mentioned quotation.
