Chelmno Death Camp
Memorials at the Waldlager (Forest Camp)
All of the photos above were taken at the Forest Camp where the bodies of the victims were buried and/or cremated.
The following quote is from a book by the Central Commision for Investigation of German Crimes in Poland entitled "GERMAN CRIMES IN POLAND" (Warsaw, 1946, 1947):
The final activities of the camp at Chelmno in 1944 differ from those of 1941-1943 in this, that the victims were brought from Kolo by a local branch railway line direct to Chelmno, where they were left for the night in the church, and the next day were taken directly to Rzuchow wood. In this wood, at a distance of only 150 metres from the crematoria, two wooden huts were constructed, one of them designed, as was previously the country house at Chelmno, to be a dressing room for those going to the bath, and the other as a clothing and baggage store.
