AUSCHWITZ - Inside The Nazi State 4of6.nfo
Corruption (April 1943-March 1944)
"Corruption" reveals why Auschwitz was unique in the Nazi state as the only site
that was both a concentration and an extermination camp. The reason was
simple-money. At Auschwitz, the Nazis wanted to kill "useless mouths" instantly
and work stronger prisoners to death as slave laborers in places like the nearby
IG Farben factory. Meanwhile, the SS profited from the belongings of those they
killed-so much so, that in the summer of 1943, an investigation was launched
into corruption in the camp and the commandant was removed. Elsewhere,
individuals and nations are finding ways to resist the spread of deportations.
Denmark, for example, is able to protect its Jewish population from Auschwitz.
