My comment on human soap on The Muqata here led me to the page where I found this picture.

The book The Janowska Road has more information about this "bone-crushing machine" and I plan to read it in the near future. The image of this machine has stayed with me since I saw it in the museum in Kiev. I don't think I will ever forget it.
