The strict headcount by the SS men is documented in Room 2 of Block 6. Prisoners were accounted from the day they arrived to the day they died. No one left unless they died :(. The third room of Block 6 accounts of all the forced labor that occurred in the camp. First the actual camps were built. Then, several German firms exploited this labor. Room 4 at Block 6 shows detailed dietary allowances for prisoners. Some of the survivors have donated artwork depicting the atrocities they experienced and saw during their time in Auschwitz. These are exhibit in Room 5 of Block 6.
