Warsaw physician Dr. Glowacki testifies 
---------------------------------------
"How many in your opinion were selected by the defendant [Klehr] on his
own authority?"

"He certainly selected and killed more than 10,000".

[...]

But the witness saw how Scherpe "personally administered injections in
Block 20. It happened during the murder of children from the vicinity
of Zamosc. There were so many of them that they had to line them up
between the barracks. Some of the children wee led into the area of
Block 20, where Scherpe killed them while the others were still playing
outside. There were more than 100".

He remembers this case so well because Scherpe had suddenly paused. "We
thought he was conscience-stricken and that was the reason he broke off
in the middle of murdering the children. I clearly remember him 
stopping. He left, and we never saw him again after that. Hantl took 
over. Hantl finished the murder of the children".  (Nauman, Bernd. 
Auschwitz: the Proceedings Against Mulka and Others. 137-8)
