Continuing on to Room 5 in Block 4, you are shown a room full of human hair found in the town of Kietz. Hair from the victims was sent back to Germany to be produced into hair lining (hair cloth). The hair recovered shows traces of the deadly hydrogen cyanide (prussic acid). Now remember the gold fillings were gathered and later melted into ingots. The actual ashes of the victims were also used as fertilizer.
