Aubrey Soper asks questions about a photo of children at Auschwitz, Tuesday, October 12, 2004
Non-electrified wire at Auschwitz?
WITH respect to the Auschwitz photo (below) of two women leading a troop of little kids "to the gas chambers" that you just posted on your website, I'm confused.
If the voltage and current in these familiar fences would kill any adult who touched them, how was it known that kids using this passage would reliably keep their hands in their pockets to ensure their reaching the gas chambers safely?
David Irving comments
YES indeed. A photo opportunity gone wrong. Study of the photo, prompted by this letter, suggests that these evidently well-fed children are not being led "to the gas chambers" at all, as the caption suggests.
