   "From time to time SS doctors visited the crematorium, above all
   Hauptsturmfu"hrer Kitt and Obersturmfu"rher Weber.  During their
   visits it was just like working in a slaughterhouse.  Like cattle
   dealers they felt the thighs and calves of men and women who were
   still alive and selected what they called the best pieces before the
   victims were executed.  After their execution the chosen bodies were
   laid on a table.  The doctors proceeded to cut pieces of still warm
   flesh from thighs and calves and threw them into waiting receptacles.
   The muscles of those who had been shot were still working and
   contracting, making the bucket jump about.  At first we thought the
   Nazis planned to use human flesh for plastic operations on wounded
   soldiers.  Only later we learned that these buckets of living flesh
   were taken to the Institute of Hygiene at Rajsko where it was used in
   the laboratories for the growing of bacterial cultures.  Once I heard
   Oberscharfuhrer Ouackernack remark: 'Horseflesh would do, but in
   war-time it is too valuable for that sort of thing.'" (Mu"ller, 46-47)
