Natzweiler-Struthof 2

Implements of torture, before waterboarding was in vogue. They just strapped you to this and removed body parts.

Class A accommodations.

Gotta get rid of the bodies. They had a lot of urns for the purpose, before they stopped caring about even that.

A memorial to the French Resistance, who comprised most of those interned here.

Towards the end, they didn't even bother with urns, just dumping the ashes in this pit.

Main Gate.

You couldn't run.

How they defiled the beautiful French countryside.

I tried out a cell in solitary for size. I'm 5'10".

The lab table, where humans were turned into lab rats.
