Crematorium I – a drawing by Jan Komski

Crematorium I

Corpses, stacked high in the Crematorium I storage chamber, awaited burial in the adjacent room. The burial was simple – in the fire and smoke of the furnaces. Prisoners, called Sonderkommando, or special squad, were forced to work in this place, on pain of death.
