Gas Chambers:


     Gas chambers were the main way people were killed at Auschwitz.  Around 1.3 million people fell victim to the gas chambers at Auschwitz (1).  About 1.1 million of these people were Jews (1).  Also, somewhere around 150,000 poles were also killed (1).  The gas that was used in these chambers was made from a pesticide called Zyklon B (2).   After death the bodies were then burnt in ovens that would dispose of the bodies.At Auschwitz extermination was conducted on an industrial scale with three million persons eventually killed through gassing” (1).





Medical Experiments:


     Many deaths at Auschwitz also occurred from medical experiments.  Dr. Josef Mengele preformed many experiments resulting in death.  He studied twins and would sew twins together and conduct other experiments with them (2).  Mengele also experimented with eye color and would try to genetically change people’s eye color (2).  Experiments were also done with altitude chambers to see how much pressure the human body can take (1).  The doctors at Auschwitz also conducted experimentation with the freezing and thawing of human bodies.  “Mengele did a number of medical experiments of unspeakable horror at Auschwitz” (1).
