Krematorium II (3)

The first view is of the rear of the women's camp, BIb. Scrolling right is a sewage treatment cistern. Scroll further to the right, this is what remains of Krematorium II as the SS blew it and the underground gas chamber up as the Russian Army approached; in an obvious and futile attempt to hide their crimes. Scrolling further right, you can see a portion of the Memorial. Scroll still further to barely make out the ruins of Krematorium III on the other side of the ramp. Moving on you can see the barbed wire fence posts of the ramp.
