Here you see the leftovers from an attempt to destroy a gas chamber/crematorium. One thing that was very striking was the systematic and detailed way that the Nazis went about trying to fulfill Hitler’s plan. For example, every prisoner was not only photographed, but photographed three times in order to get the front and each side profile of the face. There were scores and scores of leftover reading glasses, suitcases, artificial limbs, even hair, as well as notes from hundreds, even thousands of “scientific” experiments carried out by any one given doctor. Ironically, their need to do this in such detail became the fulfillment of their own burden of proof. When they realized that the camp would soon be overcome they tried to destroy all of the evidence. But it was simply more than they would ever be able to destroy.
