The house of the camp Commandant, Rudolf Höss.

"I once saw from the window of my house a Russian dragging a food-bucket behind the block next to the command building and scratching about inside it. Suddenly another Russian came round the corner, hesitated for a moment, and then hurled himself upon the one scrabbling in the bucket, and pushed him into the electrified wire before vanishing with the bucket."
Rudolf Höss, commandant of Auschwitz 1940 -1943
