Bernburg Euthanasia Facility

Main floor of the Bernburg facility. Here victims were undressed, photographed, and brought before a physician who determined a fictitious cause of death. The victims' gold teeth were also disinfected in preparation for removal after death. The red arrows indicate the movement of victims through the processing.
