    Thank you Carl,,The photos are so powerful, that these threads are silencing to say the least but makes such an impact. Very sobering to keep one grounded in their thoughts. Regards Larry

    Another section of the permanent exhibition located within the main museum building. This time, the SS staff of KL-Gross-Rosen related display.

    The other image shows the fire tank, which was practically located near the central area of the camp. This type of facility was often installed within concentration camps, such as this example shown below at Gross-Rosen. Intended for use in emergency, it allowed a large mass of water to be readily available in case of fire. They are often mistaken for swimming pools by visitors to concentration camp museums. Some locales however, did also have swimming pools installed, although mainly for the relaxation and enjoyment of the SS staff.

    What is significance of the dead tree to the site?

    It reminds me of the dead tree outside Pawiak prison (below) on which Varsovians pinned notices for prisoners who had died.

    Below, the original dead tree...

    The so called "dead tree" at the Gross-Rosen site, is surrounded by numerous commemorative markers that have been placed there throughout the years.

    Nearby, the evocative stone mausoleum stands. Ashes of the dead were interned here in 1953. Behind the mausoleum, the tree can just be seen.

    The slight embankment that can be seen in the images of the tree and surrounding area shown earlier in the thread, was used as a backdrop for many executions. The "dead tree" has also been referred to as the "tree of the dead", due to its proximity to the locale. Rather unusual for a Konzentrationslager, many prisoners were killed by firing squad at this site.

    An execution block once stood near to the Krematorium too, ruins of which can be seen below. Prisoners that were killed here, generally died from phenol injections to the heart, a practice not uncommon throughout the concentration camps.
