The wife of a Nazi director of the camp, had a peculiar hobby. When a prisoner was brought and undressed for her inspection. If she liked his tatooing [sic] hew was killed, and the piece of skin tanned. She would make purses of it. Once she made a lamp, with large tatooed [sic] lampshade. The base of the lamp is made of human bones, most of these prisoners were political or Jewish prisoners."
