Franciszek Stanek was a Polish employee at the Auschwitz railway station during the war. He was interrogated by the Soviets on 3 March 1945, during which he helped fill in the information gap caused by the lack of documents on transports by claiming vastly exaggerated numbers of deportation trains arriving at Auschwitz:
- 150 transports in 1942 with a total of 190,000-200,000 deportees.
- 360 transports in 1943 with a total of 720,000 deportees.
- 1,500 transports in 1944 with a total of approximately four million people!
He arrived at a total of some five million deportees, allowing the Soviets to claim four million victims. This is a clear case of the forced “convergence of evidence” on a lie by an evidently orchestrated testimony. (For more details, see Mattogno 2021, pp. 304f.)
