Continuation of previously posted information beginning on page 292: "Encouraged by his success, Fritsch conducted the first mass execution with Zyklon B on 3 September. Wojciech Barcz, an inmate who worked as a nurse, recalled that a few months after the beginning of the war against the Soviet Union he was ordered to bring very ill inmates into the underground cells of block 11. 'They were locked into these cells. Around ten in the evening we heard that the SS drove a large group of people to that place. We heard screaming in Russian, orders of the SS, and the sound of beating. In the middle of the night three days later, we nurses were ordered to go to block 11. We had to clear the corpses from the basement cells. We saw that a large group of Russian prisoners simply had been gassed in those cells together with the sick inmates who we had brought there. The image we saw when we opened the cell doors was that of an overpacked suitcase. The corpses fell towards us. I estimate that some sixty corpses were pushed together in a small cell. It was so packed that they could not fall over when they died, but remained standing... One could still see many signs of a terrible death struggle.' The Germans were not satisfied. Some prisoners survived the ordeal, the procedure took too long, the corpses had to be transported to the crematorium on the other side of the camp, and it took two days to air out the building. The basement of block 11 was not the ideal gas chamber, but those first excersizes had demonstrated that it was easy to convert any space into a Zyklon B gas chamber. Unlike the carbon monoxide gas chamber, with its system of pipes and perforated vents and its cumbersome gas cylinders, the hydrocyanide gas chamber required only a small porthole, preferably in the roof, through which to drop the Zyklon B crystals. ... 'I really didn't waste any thoughts about the killing of the Russian POWs,' Hoss confessed in 1946. 'It was ordered; I had to carry it out. But I must admit openly that the gassings had a calming effect on me, since in the near future the mass annihilation of the Jews was to begin.'" -- firstname.lastname@example.org "Phillip Morris Denies Cigarettes Are Cylindrical." -Headline from "The Onion."
