There are plenty of written accounts of people being burned alive during the holocaust, especially within the confines of Auschwitz. While crematoriums were primarily used for corpses, there were nevertheless circumstances of living people being put to death by means of fire. Killings were not always systematic; officers had plenty of creative power when it came to putting prisoners to death. To think that no prisoners would be killed in this way seems naive.
I'm sure that there were circumstances in which prisoners were burned to death by one means or another, but it wasn't the standard method, which I thought was what Entice was talking about. Although the furnaces probably weren't used to do that; them shits were small and stuffing a living person in one would be kind of a bitch.
One particular passage I read while in a class I took on wartime memoirs talked about Josef Mengele. He was some sort of doctor that would run crazy experiments of prisoners... apparently he sent a lot of people to be burned alive.
Mengele is my favorite Nazi because there's no end to the stupid shit he did. My favorite example is an experiment in which he removed a girl's eyes, then tried to implant them in back of the girl's twin's skull to see if they'd work. It's worth mentioning he didn't use anesthesia. Dude had a weird thing about twins and midgets, and since Nazi experimentation often involved subjecting people to conditions like extreme pressure and extreme cold, I wouldn't be surprised if somebody caught on fire now and then.
