Gas and fumigation chambers – Dachau

When you walk through these areas, you leave feeling quite sick. There are pictures of piles of bodies waiting to be put in the crematorium. There are fumigation rooms where clothing full of bugs and disease were sterilized. I did not pose for the picture outside of the gray doors leading to the fumigation chambers- that look is exactly how I felt.
The sign over the door stating Brausebad (shower room) and the smooth brick finish simulating tiling were part of an elaborate ploy to make the victims believe they were going to take a shower after having deposited their clothes in the passageway connecting the disinfestation chambers with the death chamber.
