Excerpts from the testimony of Francisek Gulba (page 351-352):
Gulba reports very generally. He came to Auschwitz on February 8, 1941,
for political reasons; he was confined to the dark cell of block 11; he
was put into the penal company; he worked in the Buna compound detail.
Depleted, he was returned to Birkenau, to the penal company, which had
been transferred to Birkenau from Auschwitz I. He worked on building a 
road to a small building in the woods where the first gassings took
place; he saw how the guards sicked dogs on the seminude women who
did not enter the gas chamber with sufficient alacrity.

"The dogs tore the women to pieces; one could see how their flesh was
torn off them".
