The crematoria in Barrack X were last used to cremate the bodies of the Nazi war criminals who were executed after they were found guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity at the Nuremberg trial in 1946. The body of Herman Goering, who committed suicide before his death sentence could be carried out, was cremated here. Click on the link below to see a close-up picture of one of the ovens.
