Photographs of Dachau Concentration Camp (1933) & Jewish Ghetto Police (c. 1940s)

Quite often, these men had to assist in the killing of their own family members. When working in the clearing of dead bodies from the floors of gas chambers – many Jewish workers would encounter the corpses of dead relatives. This physical and psychological abuse would go on for a few months before the Jewish volunteers would have themselves to submit to the very same process of extermination. Assisting the Nazi Germans often bought around three extra months of life for the individuals concerned. Describing this process is vital for understanding why the ideology of Nazism cannot be allowed to flourish once again in the world! Anyone of us could be a victim of this process!
