Archive/File: camps/auschwitz/glowacki glowakci.001 Last-Modified: 1994/08/31 Excerpts from the testimony of Dr. Czeslaw Glowacki: "I was present at almost all executions in Block 11. We picked up the corpses from the bunker in Block 11 and then they were brought to the crematory". The witness talks about the experimental gassings of Soviet prisoners of war in the basement of the bunker block. "I saw people clutching hair in their fists which they had torn from their own heads or those of others. I saw people locked in a tight embrace. I saw fingers that had bitten through. The victims were kept in the bunker for about two days, so the bodies were already in a state of decomposition. The skin of the dead stuck to our hands". (Naumann, 134-36) Work Cited Naumann, Bernd.
