Beat Them To Death, Then Carry Out Autopsies To See What They Died Of
BLAHA: I performed many autopsies on people either shot or beaten to death at their work, and made official reports on the cause of death.
HERR BABEL: You said, they were shot. Did you see such incidents yourself?
HERR BABEL: Then, how do you know that?
BLAHA: The bodies were brought to me from the place of work, and it was my duty to ascertain the cause of death; that the men had been beaten to death,for example, that the skull or ribs had been fractured, that the man had died of internal hemorrhage, or that he had been shot; I had to make an official report on the cause of death. Sometimes, but this was rare, when an investigation was conducted, I was called in as a witness.
HERR BABEL: Thank you.

Force People To Climb Trees, Then Cut The Trees Down
“I refer further to the report of the State Extraordinary Commission relative to the crimes in the city of Kiev. This report describes murders in the camps which will be also shown in the films today. I quote only one quotation from this report, which shows the methods of extermination of people in the SyretzkCamp. I quote Page 289, Paragraph 3, of the Russian text:”
“‘Radomsky and Rieder used all kinds of devices for the extermination of Soviet citizens. For instance, they invented the following method of murder: Several Soviet prisoners would be forced to climb a tree and others had to saw it down. The prisoners would fall together with the tree and be killed.'”

Kill 840,000 Russians At Sachsenhausen And Burn The Bodies In Four Portable Ovens
MR. COUNSELLOR SMIRNOV: I shall now present to the Tribunal evidence of the fact that besides the stationary crematoria, there existed also movable crematoria. The Tribunal already knows about the movable gas chambers. These were “murder vans.” There were also created transportable crematoria. An SS member, Paul Waldmann, testifies to their existence. He was one of the participants in the crime perpetrated by the German fascists when 840,000 Russian prisoners of war in Sachsenhausen were annihilated at one time. The Exhibit Number USSR-52 (Document Number USSR-52) on Auschwitz has already been presented to the Court. I quote that particular extract from the testimony of an SS member, Waldmann, which mentions the mass execution in Sachsenhausen:
“The war prisoners murdered in this way were cremated in four movable crematoria, which were transported on car trailers.”
