Field seminar for teachers

The Warsaw Ghetto Museum would like to invite teachers and educators to a free field seminar to Chełmno on Ner and Lodz between 21 and 22 March, 2020

The German Kulmhof Death Camp in Chelmno on Ner was established in December 1941 to immediately exterminate Jews in Reichsgau Wartheland. The Germans exterminated people in gas-vans, using exhaust fumes. The bodies were buried in Rzuchów Forest. The corpses were also burnt in field crematoria. Jews from nearby ghettos and the Lodz ghetto, German, Czech, and Austrian Jews as well as Romani people from Lodz were murdered in the camp.
