    The Stadelheim death certificates consists of certificates documenting the deaths of prisoners at the Stadelheim prison in Munich, Germany, between 1942-1944. The certificates indicate that the vast majority of the prisoners were executed by beheading in groups and their bodies transferred to the Anatomical Institute in Munich. Includes some bureaucratic correspondence and transport bills for taking the bodies to the Institute. Also includes the original binder which housed the documents, on which "Leichen" [Corpses] is written, and on the inside of the binder, the chemicals used to create a preservation substance to be injected into the corpses are listed.
