I wrote on my scrapbookpages.com website about a man named Jan Pilecki, who might be the same person who is  now known as Withold Pilecki.

Quote from my scrapbookpages.com website:

Each Stehzelle (standing cell) was used for third degree punishment, which consisted of 3 days in a dark cell without room to lie down or sit. The standing cells were about the size of a phone booth and had no windows.

A description of the standing cells in Block 11 can be found in the book entitled “Das Bunkerbuch des Blocks 11, im Nazi-Konzentrationslager Auschwitz,” written by Franciszek Brol, Gerard Wloch, and Jan Pilecki, Hefte von Auschwitz (prisoners from Auschwitz), which was published in 1959. On page 120 of this book is a “Plan of the Bunker of Block 11 redrawn after the original plan No. 1152 of March 16, 1942.” On this plan, the four Stehzellen in Cell 22 are marked out and numbered 1-4.
