Witness Statement: Dr. Krystyna Oleksy, ul. Wiezniow
Oswieciia 20, 32-603 Oswiecim, Poland

The Assistant Director of the Auschwitz Museum, Dr. Oleksy,
informed me during my April visit that in the now
discredited Krema I `gas chamber' people "were still gassed
there".

Two years earlier she had indicated to a French journalist,
Conan, of L'Express, that Krema I was indeed a fake.

Dr. Oleksy has to date not responded to my request for a
witness statement in these proceedings before the HREOC.
