On the right, I saw some guards appear, carrying the remains of bodies, throwing them into a pile, and return to smaller door next to the big one. I started counting the number people going into the room, and the number of bodies coming out. As I stood second in line, I counted 13 people going in, and 9 bodies coming out.
