"Another criminal was the camp Kapo
Christian Knoll of Nuremberg. In his
narrow-minded boasting he named himself
"the hangman of Natzweiler." On the ledger
of this inhuman creature must be placed
among others the painful death of a young
Russian who, along with some other
comrades, attempted escape. Unfortunately,
he was caught and beaten to death on roll
call square before the eyes of all the
prisoners. From Mueller and Knoll he
received no fewer than 154 lashes with the
whip on the naked buttocks. The tortured
prisoner had long since lost
consciousness, yet the beasts continued to
beat him." (Hackett, David A, translator, ed, 
"The Buchenwald Report," Oxford, Westview 
Press, 1995. p. 373)
