"@VA- but there were 2 other gasses used in the chambers also. "

You're correct, it wasn't the only one. That's why I said it was the "primary" one. Before that the principle method was carbon monoxide. I believe a certain small number were killed with other gasses, but most were with Zkylon B - the actual poison component was hydrocyanic acid.

Fun fact #2: it is now being touted by "alternative medicine" sites as a cancer cure, typically in the form of amygdalin. This is entirely illegal but it still happens.

@JPA: This isn't the same (correct) info I found in my research since it's been 3 1/2 years now, but at Auschwitz Carbon monoxide - Hydrocyanic Acid in a Zyklon B base (which I believe was also used in lesser strengths to de-lice) and then other other gassed were used at other locations.

I really wish I could remember the sites of my sources- the info is (horrifyingly) specific but extremely interesting. I'm a bit of a Holocaust historian but with a Swiss cheese memory.

I'll ask. What were the other gasses use? I always thought it was only one type. Was it a crystal that was mixed with water?

@VA- but there were 2 other gasses used in the chambers also.

At one time I (when I worked on the traveling Anne Frank Exhibit) I could have told you what they were but they're in my research. No one ever asked.

Not exactly a "Fun" fact, but...

Degesch Chemical continues to manufacture Zyklon B, albeit under different trade names, to this day. Zyklon B was of course the primary poison used in Nazi gas chambers.

The use of the material is the same as the original one: a fumigant pesticide. It is of somewhat limited, but still important, utility.

Brother in law was so disgusted with one states old legacy spaghetti software that he quit and went back to work for private industry. He was hired to modernize the states computer systems. So much is still old legacy systems and software. He was shocked.
