An effective way of getting rid of bodies would be to burn them.
I'm not trying to justify cruelty, but the point, I believe, Lifton was making was that the horrible circumstances requires practical decisions that were themselves horrible.
I still do not know if I'm making my point clearly. It seems to me that when people see the words, concentration camps, it conjures up a certain image in their minds & they are unable to think about matters in any other way.
