According to technical calculations, 4,756 bodies could be burnt a day in the crematories. But this was just a theoretical factor, which inluded the time for maintenance and purge of the fire-places. Practically, up to 5,000 bodies were burnt in the crematories II and III every day, 3,000 in crematorium IV and V. The capacities of the funeral piles at the bunkers was unlimited. In summer of 1944, during the deportation of Hungarian Jews, the SS put bunker II into operation again.

Jewish men stand at the edge of a mass grave in Nazi occupied Russia, waiting to be shot.  Behind, more other men, and a young boy, wait their turn.

Note the well-dressed civilians observing the executions as if they were a carnival attraction.

On the 70th Anniversary of the Execution of Sophie Scholl, 22 February 1943 - Sophie Scholl was a German woman executed by the Nazis for distributing anti-Nazi pamphlets. Prison officials, in later describing the scene, emphasized the courage with which she walked to her execution. Her last words were: "How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to offer themselves up individually for a righteous cause?
