    Pit at Auschwitz
    One of the cremation pits usedto burn the victims of the gas chambers in Auschwitz. Used mainly in the summerof 1944 when extermination was going so fast that the furnaces couldn't handlethe number of corpses. The photo was taken by a member of the camp's resistance (a member of a sonderkommando). This is one of only two images of Auschwitz taken by prisoners known to exist.Source: Auschwitz: Technique and operation of the gaschambers - J.C. Pressac, the Beate Klarsfeld Foundation, NY, 1989
