The Auschwitz scrolls are alleged writings by Auschwitz Sonderkommando members, who allegedly hid these writings in Auschwitz. The writings were allegedly discovered between 1945 and 1980 by Soviet Communists or under the Communist Polish regime.
Alleged authors include Zalman Gradowski, Zalman Lewental, Leib Langfus (also known as Lajb Langufs or Leyb Langfus), Chaim Herman and Marcel Nadjary (also known as Marcel Nadjari). Some of the alleged writings were published in the book The Scrolls of Auschwitz, while others were published in the book Amidst a Nightmare of Crime.
The alleged scrolls have been criticized for many argued absurdities, inconsistencies, and obvious Communist propaganda. Generally, alleged documents from the Communist countries should be viewed with distrust, with for instance Communist Poland stated to have had a team of experts who specialized in fabricating "evidence" and "documents".
One example of criticisms is that Leib Langfus in a "discovered" manuscript allegedly wrote about why a revolt and escape attempt failed (despite that Langfus was supposedly killed during the escape attempt) and allegedly wrote about how the SS at "the end of October 1944" drove a group of children into "the gas chamber" with great brutality and glee (despite that Langfus was supposedly killed before this during the 7 October escape attempt).
Alleged letter by Marcel Nadjari
An alleged letter by Marcel Nadjari included the allegations that 3,000 people were gassed simultaneously in a single gas chamber, that the cremation produced 0.64 kg (1.41 lbs) of remains per corpse, that the bone remains were partially crushed and the remains dumped into a river, and that the corpses were cremated without using fuel. Holocaust revisionists have argued that far lower numbers than 3,000 cannot have been gassed simultaneously in a single gas chamber, that cremation produce much more remains than 0.64 kg per corpse, that even if using this low remains claim this would mean that 1,000 tons of partially crushed bone were dumped in the river (which should leave detectable traces, especially as partially crushed bones would leave recognizable fragments of bone in the river), and that cremations without fuel are impossible (if it was possible to burn a whole corpse without fuel, then this would solve a major problem for India, which is the massive firewood requirement for funeral pyres, which has almost completely denuded India of wood).
The revisioinst Germar Rudolf has written that "In the Morgues #1 of Crematories II and III, which had a surface area of roughly 210 m² (2,260 sq ft), at least 1,000 victims are said to have been executed at a time. Other witnesses speak of 2,000 or even up to 3,000 victims. [...] Just imagine the following scene: 1,000 people of both sexes plus children enter the undressing room (Morgue #2) with a surface area of 390 m 2 (4,200 ft 2 ). Each one would therefore have an area of only 60 cm × 60 cm (2×2 ft) in which to undress. [...] People simply won’t scoot over to make room for others unless they are informed of what they need to do and then are also willing to comply. And that is particularly true if they are told to undress completely in front of hundreds of strangers of both sexes. That would never work. [...] Actually, in order to get people to enter through just one door in a long, stretched-out room and to fill it tightly to the last place, starting at the room’s opposite end, the procedure must be rehearsed. After undressing, the naked people walk over into the alleged gas chamber (Morgue #1). Since that room is much smaller, the problem gets worse. Here the victims must press themselves even more tightly together. The first people entering the room must proceed to the very end of this 100 ft long room in a disciplined manner and line up against the wall. The next lot will form the line directly in front, and so on, until the entire chamber is full. [...] already a “mere” 1,680 persons would pack the room as tightly as sardines in a can. This is impossible to achieve without willing, even eager and skillful, disciplined cooperation of all. Not to mention 2,000 or even 3,000 individuals… [...] So how did they get these 1,000 naked people to pack themselves tightly together, touching other completely naked strangers? [...] would have required the drill and discipline that you can instill only in soldiers after weeks of exercising, provided they are dressed. I don’t know if that would still work if you had those soldiers line up naked, particularly if there are female soldiers present as well. [...] that’s ridiculous. After all, under such circumstances, the alleged claim by the SS that their victims are going to have a shower in that room would convince nobody. How do you take a shower when your neighbors step on your feet and you can hardly turn around, not to mention bend down to wash yourself? [...] I don’t think that fear and even panic can accomplish more than cooperative discipline. After all, the SS men could not possibly go with the victims into the chamber and threaten them somehow in there. I think indeed that the entire scenario in and of itself is quite absurd. So even before going into technical and documentary details, you can already see that the claims made about those alleged homicidal gassings are fishy on purely logistical grounds."
The alleged letter was found in 1980. Nadjari had died in 1971. He apparently never told anyone about the alleged letter, including not in his memoirs which he wrote in 1947. Nadjari's description of events in his memoirs has also been criticized. One example is that his statements on how Zyklon B was introduced into the gas chamber contradicts the now "standardized" politically correct version. Another is that according to Nadjari's own description of cremation procedures, the crematoria did not have the capacity to cremate the alleged number of corpses.
