Chelmno Kulmhof Concentration Camp
The Chelmno Kulmhof extermination camp is an another death camp in Poland which was established by Nazi Germans during WWII. The camp is located 50 km north of Lodz, nearby a small village of Chelmno. First prisoners were killed there with the use of gas vans in December of 1941. That was a beginning of the „Final Solution” - a mass process of Jews' exterminations. Nazi Germans decided to eliminate Jews from Lodz ghetto. Most of the Jews of the Warthegau were murdered between 1941-1943. The next extermination was planned on April of 1944 in order to liquidate a Lodz Ghetto. The estimated number of victims is 150-300.000. Only a small group of inmates survived.
