Kulmhof Death Camp. The Monument.

Kulmhof. In the Kulmhof forest, various attempts have been made to get rid of the corpses of the murdered Jews. Starting from exploding bodies by incendiary bombs, and ending on fragmentation bombs. Finally, they were burnt in pits, laying on railway rails and interspersing with lots of wood. Auschwitz commander, Rudolf Hoess, participated in these experiments personally.

After the war, Szymon Srebnik, one of the few witnesses of the Holocaust, visited the camp:

"It's hard to recognize, but this is that place. People have been burning here. Many people were burned here. It has always been quiet here as now. Always. Even when 2,000 Jews were burnt daily. The peace was the same as now. Nobody shouted. They did what they were supposed to do. It was quiet and peaceful. Like now. Even today I can not believe that I am here..."

Kulmhof Death Camp. Transporting prisoners by trucks.

Kulmhof Chelmno. Transporting prisoners to the forest by trucks. Witness story:

"(...) Transporting prisoners to the forest by trucks took place at 6 am. The Jews do not expect any danger. In the evening, inmates from Waldkommando have told us what happened in the forest. After the trucks arrived in the forest, the Jews were ordered to go to one of the barracks in the forest. The Germans ordered them to take off their clothes and put them in a separate pile, because they will receive them again right after the bath. The signs on the barrack walls sounded "to the bathhouse" and "to the doctor". The Jews were expelled from the barracks and loaded into a special type of vehicle. (...) There were three delivery vans (...). These large ones could take up to 170 people, while smaller ones - 100-120. The van's doors were locked with bolts and a padlock. Then the engine was started. The flue gases were introduced inside. (...) Shouts and pounding on the door lasted about 4 minutes. The car did not move during this time. When the screams died down, the vehicle moved towards the crematorium. (...) Burstinger, Laabs, and Gielow were the chauffeurs". 

In 1950, the Polish Court in Poznań sentenced Gielow to death.

In the 1960s, guards' processes took place in Germany. The chauffeur Laabs was given 15 years' imprisonment.
