The first special group of prisoners that have the task of sorting the belongings of the murdered and the interned. At first, the belongings are sorted in Block 26 in Auschwitz I, but there are already so many things, that six buildings near the Auschwitz I camp must be built. The prisoners of this commando call this place Canada, as they believe Canada is the land of plenty. This is a privileged commando, as its members have access mainly to the food that they find in the belongings of the victims. Soon, however, they also learn to “organise” valuables, to trade with them and also to corrupt the Nazis with them. Many SS officers let them steal the valuables on purpose, and then let themselves be bribed by them. Corruption begins to flourish.
