X. The Sorting of the Loot

(Sortirea Bagajelor Jefuite)


Sorting of the Loot

[X-1]
While the selection took place, with two thirds selected for immediate death [pushed into the gas chambers and burned in the ovens] and the rest placed in the Camp to be exterminated through other means [slave labor, inanition, disease, "Experimente an lebendingen Menschen" (medical experiments), executions, etc.], their luggage, left behind in the railroad boxcars, were being combed by the "Häftlings" (the prisoners) from the "Kanada" detachment. The loot was sorted out and placed into various categories such as shoes, bed linen, men clothes, watches, jewelry, etc., and then deposited into one of the existing 30 warehouses not far from the "Death Ramp." From there, the sorted loot would find its way to Germany.


(The Original Text in Romanian)
In timp ce 2/3 din proprietarii bagajelor lasate in vagoane erau selectati, impinsi in camerele de gazare si arsi in cuptoare, iar ceilalti introdusi in lagar pentru a fi exterminati prin alte metode --munca de sclav, inanitie, boli, "Experimente an lebendingen Menschen" (experiente pe oameni vii), executii etc. --Häftlingi din detasamentul "Kanada" continuau sortarea bunurilor scoase din vagoane, pentru a fi apoi depozitate pe categorii --incaltaminte, lenjerie de pat, haine barbatesti, ceasuri, bijuterii etc.-- in cele 30 de magazii aflate nu departe de rampa mortii pentru a fi apoi trimise in Germania.

XI. ...And the Cycle of Death Continues

(... Si Ciclul Mortii Se Reia)


The cycle of death ...

[XI-1]
Six hours have passed since the deportees that had arrived from the last Birkenau-Auschwitz train left the "Death Ramp." ... And now, a new train is about to stop carrying another 3000 innocent Jews destined to die.

... And that cycle continued, day and night, with no stop, during the Spring and Summer of 1944.


(The Original Text in Romanian)
...Au trecut 6 ore de cand lotul de deportati sositi cu utlimul tren la Birkenau-Auschwitz a parasit "Rampa mortii" ... si acum se asteapta imediata oprire a unui nou tren cu 3.000 de evrei nevinovati, sortiti exterminarii.

...si acest ciclu s-a reluat zi si noapte, fara intrerupere, de-a lungul primaverii si verii anului 1944.
