Collapsed Roof of Crematorium III


 

Collapsed roof of Crematorium III, with the unloading ramp on the right. This structure was a mirror image of Crem II, out of the photo to the right. These two gassing and cremating facilities were the largest in the huge Nazi slave labor and extermination system.

Part of the collapsed structure of Crematorium III, destroyed by the Nazis in an effort to hide their crimes.

This opening in Krem III, below ground , may be all that is left of the chute down which bodies from the camp population were dropped.
