Lagerarrest  (The Bunker) 

    The left side building is the Bunker where many tortures and medical experiments took place.  On the right is the fence line and you can see just how close the neighborhoods are to the camp.   

     Ironically, Doctor Sigmund Rascher, who had conducted many of the medical experiments in the camp, was executed as a prisoner 3 days before the camp's liberation.  He and his wife were arrested for claiming 2 infants as their own that they had abducted from the camp.  His wife was old and infertile.  The "kidnapping" also violated Germany's racial purity laws.  He was shot in the back of the head in his cell in the bunker.  This may have been a result of the Nazi's realized how much he knew and trying to cover up their atrocities as they has done at other camps.
