This is a delousing fumigation cubicle. It is in the same building as the crematorium at Dachau. Not sure why you would fumigate corpses before burning. I think there was also a gas chamber in this building.

One thought on “Fumigation Cubicle, Dachau

  1. The corpses were not fumigated before burning. It was the clothing that was fumigated in this cubicle to kill the lice that spreads typhus. The clothing was fumigated with poison gas called Zyklon-B and the same gas was used to kill the Jews in the gas chamber in the same building. The Nazis were trying to stop typhus by killing lice with Zyklon-B, so that they could kill the prisoners in the Dachau gas chamber with Zyklon-B. And some people say the Holocaust never happened!
