These were innocent human beings: Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, Hitler's political opponents - anyone who did not fit Hitler's idea of a pure Aryan race." (7 ).

Looking back on his Auschwitz experience after fifty-three years, SS Dr. Hans Munch said " You have to realize that murdering people became as natural as carrying out the routine jobs you have to do every day. You got used to everyday life in Auschwitz." (8 ).
