Camp1 : Block 11
Prison cells in the basement of the infamous "death" block 11. In September 1941 the first experiment of mass killing using the gas Zyklon-B was carried out here when 600 Soviet Prisoners of War and 250 of the sick from the camp hospital were murdered. Later the cells were used for special categories of prisoners undergoing interrogation, punishment, awaiting execution by shooting, or facing death by starvation.
