Lodz: Chelmno Kulmhof Concentration Camp Tour
KL Kulmhof was the first German extermination camp in occupied Poland, located 50 kilometres northwest of Lodz, near the village of Chelmno. The first mass murder took place on December 8, 1941, when the German Nazis murdered about 700 Jews who had come to the camp the day before with car exhaust fumes. Chelmno is widely recognized as a place of early experimentation in the development of German extermination program which was later applied in other Nazi German death camps. Kulmhof operated until 1945 and its estimated death toll of the camp is between 150 000 and 200 000, mostly Jews from western and central Poland.
