Block 10 - Experitation Block

By scartlane  
This pic was taken on my recent trip to Krakow, we did a fantastic and extremly interesting trip to Auschwitz. Its hard to think of some of the things that happened there.

This would have been one of the last things some of the men and women thrown into the camp would have seen.

During the Holocaust, Block 10 was a cellblock at the Auschwitz Concentration Camp where women and men were used as experimental subjects for German doctors. The experiments in Block 10 ranged from skin testing for reaction to relatively gentle substances to giving phenol injections to the heart for immediate dissection.

Although Block 10 was in the men's camps, the experiments conducted were mostly for women.
