What tortures were at auschwits?

Although the Nazi's were famous for their use of gas chambers in the concentration camps, this was more of a method of execution rather than torture. In order to torture people (mostly for information) the Nazi's had various technical, some of their own invention, for torturing prisoners. They were very fond of 'dental work'; this could involve a variety of things such as teeth pulling, twisting and removing gold fillings without aesthetic (which were then melted down and used, along with other possessions, and made into so called 'Nazi Gold'). Nail pulling was also popular and burning with matches and cigarettes. Nazi doctors in the camps also experimented with electroshock therapy and new highly dangerous surgical techniques. Brutal beating was also common using a verity of instruments. There were many more techniques used in the camps (e.g scalping ect) but the ones listed above were the most common.

What was the Dwight D. Eisenhower responsible for Auschwitz?

First off, Dwight D Eisenhower is a man not a thing. He was President of our country during WW 2. He went to Auschwits with a group of soldiers after the war was over to see the damages and how they were treated. Whomever posted the above paragraph has his facts way off. First: Dwight D. Eisenhower was NOT President of the United States of America during WWII; that was Franklin D. Roosevelt, and upon his death on April 12, 1945, Vice President Harry S Truman became President. Second: Dwight D. Eisenhower was Supreme Commander of Allied Forces (American, British, Canadian, Australia/New Zealand, South African, French (Free French until France's liberation in the Summer of 1944), and British Empire (Indian, Nigerian, Ghanaian, Kenyan, Tanzanian, Jamaican, Gurkha Nepalese, Guyanan, Belizan *British Honduran*) minus the Red Army (Soviet Union) during World War II. Third: Eisenhower never saw Auschwitz. Auschwitz was a Nazi concentration camp (Its sister camp, Birkenau *together called Auschwitz-Birkenau* was the death camp) in central Poland, and was liberated by the Red Army in January 1945. Eisenhower DID see a number of concentration camps in Germany, most notably Buchenwald, but Auschwitz was NOT on the list, as that was in Poland, deep in Red Army held territory.
