A massively abridged English translation has appeared as The Rudolf Report, London: Cromwell, 1993.
A 1997 version in German is present at http://www.vho.org/D/rga/rga.html.
A woefully incomplete document that claims to be a translation of the Rudolf Report - minus the footnotes - appears at http://www.codoh.com/rudolf/rudreport/rudreport.html. The link to a German version, on the Zundelsite, appears to be incorrect. Inquiries to CODOH regarding whether this document is actually Rudolf's work and whether a complete translation is planned have gone unanswered.
The water tap was in the corridor and a rubber hose was run from it to wash the floor of the gas chamber...
Normally the concrete floors in the gas chamber as well as in the changing room were damp: today they were carefully dried....
The Sonderkommando squad, outfitted with large rubber boots, lined up around the hill of bodies and flooded it with powerful jets of water. This was necessary because the final act of those who die by drowning or by gas is an involuntary defecation....
Once the gas chamber had been cleared, it must be hosed free of all traces of blood and excrement - but mainly blood - and then it must be whitewashed with a quickdrying paint. This step is crucial, and it is done each time the gas chamber is emptied, for the dying have scratched and gouged the walls in their death throes. The walls are embedded with blood and bits of flesh, and none on the next transport must suspect that he is walking into anything other than a shower. This takes two or three hours.
