The greatest lie ever told – The Holocaust – 2015 Documentary

PB: The video does not distinguish Auschwitz (for Poles from the beginning of WW2) from Birkenau (the camp for Gypsies and Jews couple of years later).

The “swimming pool” is located at Auschwitz camp. It could have been a fire-fighting water retention tank, or a pool for the use of camp staff and priviledged prisoners:

Why would the Nazis build a springboard, ladders etc. accessories typical for a swimming pool if it was a water reservoir only? Any swimming pool doubles as fire-fighting water reservoir.

On the other hand:

Barbara Cherish, the daughter of Arthur Liebehenschel, wrote a book which was published in 2009, entitled “My father, the Auschwitz commandant.” In her book, Barbara credits her father with building a swimming pool for the use of the prisoners. Liebehenschel was the Commandant of the Auschwitz main camp for five months, beginning on December 1, 1943. Liebehenschel is credited with other improvements at Auschwitz I, including the tearing down of the standing cells in Block 11.

In the Epilogue of the book entitled “Death Dealer,” which was first published in 1992 as the autobiography of Auschwitz Kommandant Rudolf Höss, the editor of the book, Steven Paskuly wrote the following:

When Höss was promoted to Berlin, his replacement, Kommandant Arthur Liebehenschel, was put in charge of just the Auschwitz camp… […] He had the water trough near Blocks 7 and 8 converted into a swimming pool for Kapos and prisoners who worked well.
