Majdanek Concentration Camp in Poland--How much ashes does one human being make--by Kyi M Kaung

I visited Majdanek former concentration camp in 1969  Easter, with a Polish friend from Lublin.  We saw the memorial, which Wikipedia says was completed in May 1969, and even took photos, now lost.
Concerning this I wrote a poem abt Aushwitz and Majdanek which features the line--"how much ashes does one human being make?"

Because there is a small hillock of human ashes under that round memorial building in Majdanek.

I have since asked several people who brought back relatives' ashes from cremations, and if you medical or science people know the answer, pl let me know.

In my present novel, a female garuda just laid eggs in ashes of Majdanek and Auschwitz.
