"The Sauna" (Delousing Center)

16 of 20

This building was used as a reception area and for exterminating bugs, mainly lice. Inmates selected for work, including new arrivals, disrobed and waited, sometimes naked in freezing weather, for their clothes to be disinfected. Zyklon-B, the same cyanide gas pellets used to kill people, was also used to kill vermin.
