Survivors and American soldiers watch as former SS guards are forced to crawl along the ground at the Mauthausen concentration camp. Looking at this picture from the comfortable distance of 70 years, it may seem a petty degradation to make the guards crawl like this.

Polish Jews are forced to hold heavy logs while squatting.  This is a classic form of torture and torment the world over.  Not terribly taxing at first, holding the object becomes more and more difficult with every passing minute.  After only a short while, the arm muscles begin to ache and shake.  Finally, the muscles simply give out.  Not a big deal when it's a contest between friends.  A much bigger deal when you continue to live only as long as you can keep the object raised.
