  Cyclon B in Auschwitz 1
by coceng

This photo taken by me was a display of empty cans of Cyclon B, a substance which was poured into the death chambers through a special opening in the ceiling.
Within 15 to 20 minutes, the people trapped inside the death chambers died. Most of the times, it wouldn't take that long for the prisoners to suffocate & die; considering thousands of prisoners were put inside the death chambers at ANY one time, difficult of breathing contributed to their painful death...

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
