I think the disease came afterwards after allied bombings wrecked supply lines. Cause think about it, they did have a shower and haircut yet disease
still spread? And if disease was so rampant, why waste resources on gas chambers and tons of coal or wood. Just dont give showers and disease will
take care of the problem. However, these 'evil' germans did the opposite, they actually tried to protect the prisoners from lice and typhus. Oh those
You are now, either wilfully or through ignorance, twisting my words. They expected a shower of water. They got instead a shower of Zyklon-B capsules,
or they got exhaust fumes, depending on the camp. The disease of typhus by the way comes whenever you can't shower, can't clean your clothes and then
get exposed to someone with lice. The German soldiers in Stalingrad had typhus.
Not sure where you're going with the Allies bombing the supply lines, other than an attempt to blame them for the disease. No. The worst typhus
epidemics hit the concentration
camps at the end. The vast majority of deaths in the Holocaust were in the extermination camps and were from
the showers of Zyklon-B and exhaust fumes in 1942-1944. By the end of 1944 even Himmler could see that things were going very badly and that it might
be time to destroy as much evidence as possible. Fortunately they failed. The eyewitnesses in particular were very detailed.
Oh and by the way the German didn't give a toss about the prisoners, but did act on typhus epidemics in Auschwitz and I think Belzec in 1942 because
they needed the guards to stay alive.
