Inside building 164 in 1945. Probably the Zyklon B store. In fact it is impossible to exactly situate these photos in building 164 (9, 9a or 9h?), because the building has since been demolished.

[PMO neg. no. 879]

Northwest side of building 164. From right to left, the main entrance door, two extractor fans and their control boxes, and the gas-tight door of the gas chamber. Since the building no longer exists, its interior arrangement will remain unknown, unless other photographs are found. We therefore do not know the dimensions of the gas chamber and are not even certain whether there were one or two gas chambers.
