Belzeç concentration camp Poland 2015.
Established November 1st, 1941, Belzec extermination center consisted of two camps divided into three parts: administration section, barracks and storage for plundered goods, and extermination section. Initially, there were three gas chambers using carbon monoxide housed in a wooden building. They were later replaced by six gas chambers in a brick and concrete building. Belzec extermination center began operations March 17th, 1942 and ended operations December 1942. The estimated number of deaths is 500-600,000, mainly Jews.We visited 10th June and found the museum totally silent,no birds no nothing...the mounds of volcanic like rocks were all put there during 2004 as well as the eerie sections of twisted strands of reinforcing bar that reprisents the victims desperately all struggling to stay alive..very disturbing indeed.I managed to find some old loco sheds nearby that was used to store the clothing and shoes etc taken from the victims.I also found Christien Wirth`s house where he lived whist running the camp..it is derelict and up for sale.Read More
