This is the only study on Chelmno, the first death camp on Polish soil and the model for setting up the machinery of mass murder. Mass killings, mostly of Lodz Jews and gypsies, began in December 1941 and continued until the Red Army liberated the camp in January 1945. Three people survived Chelmno, and only a few who operated the death camp were ever brought to justice.
