Nazis disguising torture.

and other tragedies

Gas showers and gas vans.

Nazis went to great extents to hurt and kill Jews. They were told they were going to get showers and were led into a large room where they were then gassed and killed. the nazis also used gas vans. Gas vans were sealed trucks with engine exhaust diverted to the interior compartment. Use of gas vans began after Einsatzgruppe members complained of battle fatigue and mental anguish caused by shooting large numbers of women and children. Gassing also proved to be less costly. Einsatzgruppen (mobile killing units) gassed hundreds of thousands of people, mostly Jews, Roma (Gypsies), and mentally ill people.
