Incineration Area in the Woods

On the other side of the trees in the distance was Krematorium V and its burning pits. In this field people were also burned in large cremation pits. The monuments in four languages, Polish, Russian, English, and German read:

To the memory
Of the men, women and children
Who fell victim to the Nazi genocide.
Here lie their ashes. May their souls rest in peace.
