A wooden freight car. A wire basket used to drop Zyklon B into the killing rooms. A section of concrete fence posts laced with electrified wire. A whip. An operating table for medical “experiments.” A baby’s shoe.https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/06/15/auschwitz-america-holocaust-warning/
