That plume was actually even larger

New RAF photos of Birkenau are now available at http://aerial.rcahms.gov.uk

That famous 23.08.44 photo released several years ago is actually just one of many frames depicting open-air incineration in Birkenau on that day, and the plume of smoke is actually much larger than the part depicted on the frame released back then. Go to http://aerial.rcahms.gov.uk/database/record.php?usi=006-001-003-072-C and http://aerial.rcahms.gov.uk/database/record.php?usi=006-001-003-155-C

Interesting. Why do you think that two days after these photographs were taken, no such smoke can be seen?

Because at that specific moment it was not burning. Logical enough? :)

The aerial photos have been examined during the RODOH debate. And specifically the American Aug.25 photos have been addressed. See http://rodohforum.yuku.com/topic/2273

The same explanation applies to the British photo made on the same day.
