Description
Gas chamber and crematorium II opened on March 31st 1943. It functioned from that day on until November 1944. During that period, 500,000 Jewish men,women, and children as well as Gypsies, Poles, and Soviet prisoners of war were murdered in it's underground gas chamber. On January 20, 1945, as the Nazis were attempting to evacuate Auschwitz, SS troops blew up crematoria II and III in an attempt to hid the evidence of atrocities committed here. Crematorium II had an undressing room, gas chamber, SS office, and fifteen furnaces for burning corpses. #auschwitz #concentration_camps #Crematorium #holocaust #Nazis
