  • Gas pellets would be dropped from above the “shower” rooms where those to be executed were put into under the pretense of showering and delousing.
  • Once dead the bodies would be moved into giant crematoriums like this one pictured on the bottom left.
  • The bodies were disposed of to prevent any evidence from being found.
