Polish physician, Dr. Klodzinski, testifies about the murder of the 
Zamosc children: 
"In the afternoon came the order to kill the children. They were led
into the washroom, and told to undress and line up. And then Scherpe
came; I still remember that".

Klodzinski speaks of the dead silence in Block 20 at that moment; 
nothing was heard except thumps "- it was a muffled sound" - as the
heads and bodies of the slain children fell to the floor of the 

"Suddenly Scherpe came out of the room and said 'I can't anymore', and
left. After a while Hantl took his place and and murdered the remaining
children".  (Nauman, Bernd. Auschwitz: the Proceedings Against Mulka and 
Others.  152)
