Auschwitz/Birkenau

Krematorium II




Inside the collapsed roof of Krematorium II at Birkenau, blown up by the Nazis before the evacuation of the camp. Outside, is a path from the women's camp, one barracks of which can be seen beyond the trees. Krematoria II and III were the largest gasssing and cremation facilities in the entire Nazi universe. They were the very heart of what survivor/author Erik Kulka calls "The Death Factory".
