When the first thirty Jewish children arrived from Warsaw, he assigned to a university-educated Ukrainian guard the task of axing the children to death. It should be noted that, in the climate of the later Cold War, the murderer escaped censure and eventually returned to the teaching profession. There was no slackening of technical efficiency when Von Eupen was succeeded by Odilo Globocnik, a veteran killer who had set up the camps in Maidanek and Sobibor and proved his mettle in the liquidation of the Bialystok ghetto. He accelerated the death process in Treblinka by channeling the gas fumes of diesel engines directly into the chambers. He saw to it that soothing music was supplied, usually by other hapless Jewish prisoners, for the march to the gas chambers, `Ascension' and `The Way to Heaven' being amonth the favorite selections. Himmler found Globocnik so talented and entertaining that he promoted him to the commandant's post at Belzec."
