The Little Farm House

This place, in the rear of Birkenau, looked like a farmhouse. In reality it was a gas chamber. Bodies were taken from here and burned in pits, a far more efficient method of disposal than the more formal Krematoria. All that is left now are the foundations and this tree. I have often wondered if it was there... then.
