The section process on arrival at the AR camps and A-B is very well known and I found Turnagain's claim of missing it very suspicious, so a search found selections or the selection process has been mentioned 155 times in posts he made. He has been very dishonest suggesting he missed it.Turnagain wrote:Yep, I must have missed the description of the selection process. By all means post a link to it.
Here are some links to descriptions of that process;

"The holocaust selection process refers to who was chosen for forced labour and who was sent to gas chambers upon arrival of concentration camps such as Auschwitz....Upon arrival, there would be holocaust selection, where the Nazi doctors and commandants would assess age, physicality and skills when deciding who would be forced to work and who would be killed....After the Chelmno Extermination Camp, the Nazi party built five other death camps in the attempt to complete their Final Solution to the Jewish Question. The five other camps were named as follows:
...After deportation trains arrived at an extermination centre, Nazi guards would order the prisoners out of the packed trains and into a line to undergo the selection process. During this process, men were placed separately from women and children, and an appointed officer of the Nazi party, typically an SS physician, would examine each of the deportees to determine whether they were in good physical health to be put to work – noting that they had usually passed several weeks or months by this point with very little food and had endured a packed train journey of several days without food or water."

"Between March and July 1943 nineteen transports left from Westerbork to Sobibor. Most of the 34,313 deportees were gassed immediately upon arrival. A few hundred prisoners were selected to work in the camp or in neighbouring camps. Nearly all of them died of starvation, exhaustion or ill treatment. Only eighteen Sobibor survivors who were originally transported from the Netherlands returned home."
A witness describes the selection he experienced on arrival at TII;

"They opened the freight cars - we heard the order “Get Out.” There were shouts, we began getting off, so that they did not give us an opportunity to understand where we were or what was happening – we were chased straight away to the square, and there we were ordered to hand over our money and jewellery, we were then told to remove our shoes.
“Suddenly we heard an order to line up. We lined up. We were made to stand there again - all the time, I want to stress, with blows – they arranged us in rows, in threes. One of them passed through the ranks – later I heard he was called the “Hauptmann with the glasses,” and he did wear glasses. He began asking us, one by one, what was his profession....Next to me stood a Jew who was an electrical engineer and he was also ordered to step forward. The two of us left the line – apart from us none of the transport stepped forward."
Some were selected to work as Sonderkommados in the camps. Others were selected and went to work in other camps such as Majdanek. Eric Hunt's Treblinka Archaeology Myth video recorded some of them, listed here;
