Two witnesses testify about the liquidation of the Gypsy camp in 

>From the testimony of Maximilian Sternol:
...It was the liquidation of the Gypsy compound. Terrible scenes took 
place. Women and children were on their knees in front of Mengele and
Boger crying, 'Take pity, take pity on us'. Nothing helped. They were
beaten down brutally, trampled on, and pushed on the trucks. It was a
terrible, gruesome night".

"Did Boger also hit them?".

"Yes, he killed them. They collapsed and died and were thrown on the 
trucks. The entire political section was there. Yes, I saw Baretzki
and Broad". (Naumann, 114)

[Boger and Baretzki were sentenced to life imprisonment for taking
part in numerous murders at Auschwitz. Broad was sentenced to 4 years.
Dr. Mengele fled after the war and, apparently, died in South-America
in the mid 1980's].
