Continuing from what was seen in the previous blocks; Block 6 gave an insight into the daily lives of the prisoners. I already mentioned most of this earlier so no need to repeat the atrocities in detail. Room 1 of Block 6 shows the initial forced entrance to the camp. The Germans strip the prisoners of their clothes and hair. Those who were fit healthy to work were then tattooed with a code. KL Auschwitz was the only camp where tattoos were implemented.
