Concentration Camps Taylor Morris
"During the early months of 1943, the corpses of the murdered were disinterred and burned in open air pits. The camp was then closed" (Pruden).
"Established November 1, 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" (Pruden).
"Small fragments of bone catch the sunlight at the forest sight where the crematories once stood. 'It's the one thing to hear about the crematory, it's another to stand inside an enormous pit that is filled with human bones', says Kryzysztof Gorczyca, an archeologist who directed last summer’s excavation. 'Only then did it occur to me how many people were murdered here'" (Golden).
