Krematorium V (#3)    
       
   

 

These are the ruins of Krematorium V at Birkenau. The number and size of the death and disposal facilities here illustrate just how extensive was the Nazi plan to exterminate all the Jews they could grasp in their clutches. In the distance just before the trees are burning pits. With all the capacity of the four large crematoria, still they were in need of additional methods of disposing of the bodies of murdered victims.
