the workers at Auschwitz were terrible. they would disguise the gas chambers as showers and would make the inmates take towels, undress and enter the gas chambers 2 thousand at a time. inmates would wonder why water was not coming out of the shower heads. instead of water, hydrogen cyanide would come and take its toll. in 20 to 30 minutes all 2 thousand people would be dead. S.S. fighters would enter the gas chambers with gas masks and search for survivors. if found live inmates would still be taken to the crematorium and burned alive with the passed inmates. S.S. fighters would take the gold crowns off of inmates teeth and cut all hair, partial scalps included, and sell the hair because it was good for the German economy
