In the first paragraph of the text you can read: “Block 11 was known as the ‘death block’. It served several functions, of which the most important was its role as the central camp jail. Male and female prisoners from all parts of the camp complex were held in this building. Most of these people were suspected by the camp Gestapo of involvement in clandestine activities: attempting to escape, organizing mutinies, and maintaining contacts with the outside world.” photofree exgif stockphoto
