One of the openings in the roof of the Gas Chamber through which the canisters of Zyklon-B crystals were emptied. On contact with air, the crystals produced hydrogen cyanide gas, killing the victims in 15 - 20 minutes. Zyklon-B gas was produced by the company Degesch who made huge profits from sale of the gas to the SS. In the year 1942 - 1943 about 20,000 kilograms of Zyklon-B was used. Just 5 - 7 kilograms of the poison was enough to kill 1,500 people.
