The following is from a book purchased from the memorial on the site
of the Dachau camp in December 1993.

   "In 1940, as the death rate continued to increase, a camp cremation
   with one incinerator was built.  In the course of the mass
   extermination plan, a bigger plant with a gas chamber and four
   incinerators -- the so-called "Baracke X" -- was quickly erected in
   1942.  The gas chamber, which was camoflaged as a shower room, was
   never put into use.  Thousands of prisoners, who were selected for
   extermination, were sent to other camps or to Hartheim Castle near
   Linz to be gassed." (Distel et al., 173)
