Step on the grass and get shot

Seriously. These towers have parts of the remaining trench in front of them. If prisoners stepped on the grass, they were shot. That bridge led to a gate that prisons were escorted out of to work outside of the camp. The guards would sometimes let someone fall behind on the way to work so they could accuse them of trying to escape and shoot them.
