Four ovens in Baracke X were used to burn bodies of dead prisoners

These coal-fired ovens were used between 1943 and October 1944. The bodies of the Nazi war criminals, who were sentenced to death at the Nuremberg trial, were the last corpses to be cremated here, including the body of Hermann Göring. A sign overhead says that Dachau prisoners were executed by hanging from the rafters. The green door in the back leads to a hallway which runs behind the rooms in this building, which are off limits to tourists.
