CLAIM: There was not enough room in the extermination areas of the Operation Reinhard camps to crush the bones. The American Holocaust denier videomaker asks about Treblinka: "Where did they crush and sift the burnt remains of a population equivalent to San Francisco?"
RESPONSE: If this matter were not so gruesome and terrible, the American Holocaust denier videomaker’s scenario would be laughable. The American Holocaust denier videomaker has already demonstrated his tendency to make everything more complicated so that he can denounce it as unworkable. Sometimes the bones were crushed with machines and sometimes by hand. It was not a precision process but it worked. The contents of the mass graves in Belzec show that it happened.
