I have a question. I know the holocaust is not your subject area, but do you have any idea why J.C. Pressac's book on the gas chambers [Technique and Operation of Gas Chambers] is so completely impossible to find? I have tried ordering it from amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, amazon.de, amazon.at, from nearly every bookshop on internet, including second hand ones -- nowhere to be found.
What is there in this book that is too uncomfortable to reveal?
Carlos Porter informs us (Saturday, November 6, 1999): "The book can be obtained second hand from www.alibris.com. They have one copy of it for one thousand dollars. We should have bought them as investments."
As of about 2 years ago, the price of the book was still $100 (which, incidentally, was the price it originally sold for).
MANY people have made the same comment. Pressac's book is totally impossible to obtain. I once saw a copy. Once! I think the documents it contains are more damaging to the Holocaust scholars than helpful.
