How do the SS officers further demonstrate their inhumanity as the men are waiting for the train?

In chapter 6. Well, the men continue to watch as they swallow the snow of thirst and laugh. Would that be it?

- The SS officers make the prisoners run through the snow, and they shoot those who fall behind.

- When they finally arrive at Gleiwitz, they are crowded into barracks, and Eliezer feels like he is going to be suffocated by the mass of people lying on top of him. People are crushing each other to death because it is so crowded.

- They stayed at Gleiwitz for three days without food or drink.

- The prisoners wait standing for a train in the middle of a snow-covered field, and because they are deprived of water and forbidden from bending over, they begin eating snow from each other's backs using spoons. The SS officers simply laugh.
