A body processing factory on the German-Polish border, the so-called corpse receiving room of the inventor of plastination, Dr. Gunther von Hagens, is one of the places where it begins. Here the bodies are donated by Europeans and Americans.

"I am concerned that public exhibitions are hijacked by corporate interests," he told ABC News. (ABC News)
