Auschwitz-Birkenau, the alleged largest extermination camp, had several crematoria. Lots of fairytales have been told about these installations, e.g. that they were able to cremate millions of corpses.
An important data source is a chapter from Germar Rudolf's book "Dissecting the Holocaust". This chapter "The crematoria ovens of Auschwitz and Birkenau" starts on page 373 and was written by (guest star) Carlo Mattogno.
Auschwitz-Birkenau had 4 crematoria: Krema II-III-IV-V. (Krema I was a relatively small installation in Auschwitz I which was not an alleged extermination camp. When the other Kremas came into operation, Krema I was shut down).
Krema II had 5 ovens with each 3 muffles. In operation: 166 days in 1943 and 266 days in 1944.
Total: 432 (days) x 15 (muffles) = 6,480 cremation days of 1 muffle.
Krema III also had 5 ovens of each 3 muffles. In operation: 190 days in 1943 and 266 days in 1944.
Total: 456 (days) x 15 (muffles) = 6,840 cremation days of 1 muffle.
Krema IV had 2 ovens of each 4 muffles. In operation: only 50 days in 1943 then it suffered damage beyond repair and was not used any longer.
Total: 50 (days) x 8 (muffles) = 400 cremation days of 1 muffle.
Krema V also had 2 ovens of 4 muffles. In operation: 82 days in 1943 and 144 days in 1944/45.
Total: 226 (days x 8 (muffles) = 1,808 cremation days of 1 muffle.
Grand total of one day operations of 1 muffle:
6,480 + 6,840 + 50 + 1,808 = 15,528 cremation days of 1 muffle.
The ovens were not operated longer than 12 hours a day (even no longer than 9 hours a day, according to certain established historians).
To burn one corpse would take at least one hour with this equipment, hence the maximum would have been close to 12 corpses a day.
Sometimes two corpses would fit in one muffle, but only two very light ones, e.g. two 75 lb corpses or two children. But because a double load lengthens the cremation time and because single loads were standard, I estimate the maximum capacity to be definitely not larger than 1.2 corpses per hour.
The maximum number of corpses that could possibly have been cremated:
With 10 corpses a day per muffle the maximum number would have been...155,280
With 12 corpses a day per muffle (1/hr)............................................... ....186,336
With 14.4 corpses a day per muffle (1.2/hr)...............................................223,603
These figures are not an indication of how many were actually cremated, but are estimates of how many could possibly have been cremated.
The Truth cannot be far away from these figures; actually an estimate of 14 corpses a day per muffle is almost unrealistically high, particularly as a standard for all cremation days. E.g. sometimes the ovens were in operation for less than 12 hrs/day, sometimes there was a temporary fuel shortage or a few muffles temporarily out of order etc.
Multi-million figures provided by the Holocaust mafia are totally nonsensical and are claimed only for extortion purposes.
Nizkor claims a capacity of 1,7 million cremations for Krema II and III alone. A miracle of sorts... This completely debunks the revisionist claims that 1.5 million Jews died in Poland, or the even more absurd original claim that 4 million of them were killed, which was later changed because of the pressure from the revisionists, probably to create the false idea that some kind of new study was done to give a more accurate estimate, but even the revisionist version is also a lie.
