"German toilets are really the key to the horrors of the Third Reich. People who can build toilets like this are capable of anything." --Fear of Flying by Erica Jong

A washout toilet, informally called a German toilet, is a kind of flush toilet predominantly used in Germany and Austria. The German terms for this type of toilet are Flachspüler or Hochspüler. The German toilet has a shelf in the toilet bowl above the water surface to hold the faeces before flushing, where they may be inspected for "health reasons".
