These are the ruins of
Crematorium 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.
