Gas Chamber and Crematorium III / Krema III of Auschwitz-Birkenau
The gas chamber and crematorium III of Birkenau was exactly identical to the Crematorium II in structure. Several hundred thousands of Jewish men, women and children were gassed to death here. Crematorium III was functional from June, 1943 through November, 1944 and was dynamited by the Nazis on January 20, 1945. Krema III also had an undressing room, an underground gas chamber and a crematorium for burning the corpses. Look for the original building in the photograph below.
