Isla Koch turned Jews into furniture and clothing:
"Ilsa Koch corresponded with the wives of commandants in other concentration camps, giving them instructions on how to turn human skin into a book cover, lampshade, gloves, or a fine table cloth."
According to a Jew who survived 5+ years in Buchenwald; Isla Koch used shrunken heads as handles on her riding crops:
"Underneath the lampshade was a stand made from pieces of human bone and, as a decorative item, a shrunken human skull. The parchment-like material looked like a Torah scroll. You could see the tiny holes where the hair once was. There was also a shrunken head that served as a handle for one of her riding whips."
Jews were tricked into getting on trains to be sent to concentration camps with chocolate:
"Young Alex saw action on the Russian front, and was even used by the SS to lure Jewish people to their deaths. Outside the cattle trains which carried victims to the concentration camps, he handed out chocolate bars to tempt them in."
According to the General Secretary of the Association of Romanian Jews:
"... in Banila pe Siret “only” a few were killed, but they were cut to pieces so that the axles of carts could be smeared with their blood...
July 5, 1941
In Banila pe Siret, local residents, led by Mayor Mocaliuc and a certain Barbaza, killed 15 Jews, among them M. Satran, an eighty-year-old blind man, Iacob Fleischer and Iacob Brecher together with his daughter. Brecher’s body was cut into pieces, and his blood was smeared on the axles of carriages."
Tables & chairs made from human skeletons in Himmler's office, Himmler's human-skin lampshade, Human skin copies of Mein Kampf for top Nazis:
Frau Potthast said she would show them something interesting, a special collection Himmler kept in what had become his special lair. She led the way up to the attic.
"When she opened the door and we flocked in, we didn't understand what the objects in that room were—until she explained, quite scientifically, you know," Martin said, his voice now toneless. "It was tables and chairs made of parts of human bodies. There was a chair ... the seat was a human pelvis, the legs human legs-on human feet. And then she picked up a copy of Mein Kampf from a pile of them—all I could think was that my father had told me not to bother to read it as it had been outdated by events. [Speer had told me that Hitler had said exactly the same thing to him.] She showed us the cover-made of human skin, she said—and explained that the Dachau prisoners who produced it used the Rückenhaut, the skin of the back, to make it."
He said they fled, his mother pushing them ahead of her down the stairs. "Eike was terribly upset," he said, "and I was too." It hadn't helped them much, he said, when his mother, trying to calm them, told them that their father had refused to have the book in the house when Himmler had sent him a similar copy."
As well as bears and eagles, the Buchenwald zoo had a rhinoceros, tigers & monkeys. The Nazis advertised their zoo, and sold day tickets to Buchenwald concentration camp "sightseers". Ilse Koch "was always fucking some guard or other", "close to her horses". The bears ate either steak, honey and jam, or Jews, depends who you listen to:
"They had deer, wild boar, bears, tigers, foxes. Commandant Koch liked to amuse himself by throwing prisoners into the bear cages. The prisoners built a zoo, too. The zoo had monkeys, pheasants, and even a rhinoceros. The SS opened the game preserve to the public. They advertised it locally and made quite a profit from sightseers. Frau Koch, Use Koch was her name, used to go riding in the riding hall nearly every morning. She was always fucking some guard or other. I heard that she liked to fuck close to her horses, in the riding hall. She liked the band of prisoners to play music for her while she rode. She was so evil that her evil stood out in the middle of all the evil." "Not far from the camp crematorium, Kommandant Koch maintained a zoo with four bears, five monkeys and a rhinoceros. Koch fed steak to his pet bears while the inmates subsisted on 'Viking Salad' (rotten liver sausage, fish heads and potatoes), and tea made from acorns." "Karl Koch, built within this nightmarish human "menagerie" a full-scale hunting lodge and zoo. The hunting lodge was spectacular and expensive, following precisely the design of old German falconries and hunting lodges. A performative equivalent of the animal-like existence of the prisoners, the hunting lodges housed falcons and caged wildcats; the prisoners themselves, along with SS guides, gathered deer, wild boar, foxes, pheasants, and other wild game animals for the adjacent preserve. The inmates were also forced to build the zoological garden, which contained monkeys, bears, and even a rhinoceros. To add to the absurdity, the zoo animals ate infinitely better than the inmates: "Althought the camp suffered from a serious food shortage, the zoo animals received a daily meat ration from the prisoner mess. Bears ate honey and jam, monkeys consumed potatoes and milk, oat flakes, and other delicacies." Thus, with imminent slaughter and walking death all around them, the inmates were obliged to capture, maintain feed (sometimes be fed to), and care for the animals and game; the Jews were even forced to pay, through a "voluntary collection," for the replacement of animals that died."
Barney Burson served in the United States 30th Infantry Division, he witnessed the horror which was Buchenwald, the Nazi concentration camp with a rhinoceros, where a Jew was fed everyday, to a bear. Barney wrote home to his wife on June 13th, 1945 describing how the Nazis crushed the cremated remains of Jews, in an elevator. The elevator was thought to have been used for bring up cadavers from the mortuary/execution room beneath the crematorium, until Barney Burson's letter was forward to the Times, by Barney's son, Melvin.
"Burson described for his wife the furnaces where Jews were incinerated and the elevators the Nazis used to slowly crush their bodies."
Eva Olsson a survivor of Auschwitz on the bread made from wood and human bone soup served there:
"Olsson remembers the twice daily rations at Auschwitz – a slice of bread that was 70 per cent sawdust, a cup of black coffee, a mug of potato peel or turnip peel soup and, occasionally, the dreaded “surprise soup” in which swam bits of bone and tufts of human hair."

A. We had to make up songs and sing while we were going to work, and also the Brandmeister (fire chief) would march in front, he was clothed like a devil; he had a special uniform with a hook in his hand and we had to march after him and sing. Afterwards we were also joined by an orchestra which would play as we sang and accompany us on our march to work."
