Gas Chambers

Emily Sabean

Background & Example

Gas chambers were the location for mass amounts of minorities to be exterminated. Within the locked and sealed chamber with thousands of bodies, a toxic gas chemical is released, suffocating all those inside and killing them. Specifically, in Operation Reinhard, the SS and police killed these "prisoners" deported to the Operation Reinhard killing centers by locking them in the gas chamber into which truck engines pumped deadly carbon monoxide, which took care of the vast majority of the minorities. Very few of the minority prisoners were killed by shootings, meaning that the gas chambers was the source of mass killings.
