From the testimony of Siegbert Loffler:

The witness tells of working in the Auschwitz station, where several
carloads of dead children had to be unloaded.

"They were little girls aged three or four, dressed like little dolls,
as if for a birthday party or some celebration. One remembered one's
own children and lifted them out carefully. But when you got hit over
the head with a truncheon you threw them out".(Naumann, 331)
