Paul Leo Seidel, of Munich, former inmate of the Auschwitz Extermination Camp, displays a model of the ‘Boger Swing.' It was a torture method devised by Wilhlem Boger, one of the defendants at the Frankfurt Auschwitz Trials held from December 20, 1963 to August 19, 1965. According to testimony of Auschwitz survivors, the prisoner’s hands were tied in back and their legs put through this loop. They were then made to ‘swing’ by Boger using truncheon or whip.
