Every aspect of life within the fences was a torture where mistreatment by the guards was not only encouraged but was compulsory. Herman Pister's installment as commandant in 1942 only intensified the horrors committed there with experimentation on inmates in ways to kill more conveniently. The atrocities were discovered with its liberation by U.S. forces in 1945 and the desire for revenge took over as camp personnel were hunted down and made to publicly stand trial for war crimes.
