Unloading Area

10 of 20

This is the unloading area, also known as the ramp, which begins just inside the main gate, continues for hundreds of yards, and ends adjacent to Crematories II and III. New arrivals, exhausted and confused, immediately went through a selection process. Those chosen for work went in one direction, the remainder, falsely told they were going to take disinfecting baths and have a warm meal, were moved in procession to the gas chambers.
