Chelmno- village

During his investigations in 1946, judge W. Bednarz made an absolutely extraordinary map of the Chelmno village. This map shows the names of people who lived during the SS-Sonderkommando Kulmhof activity in Chelmno, many of whom he interviewed during his investigations. During our detailed research we confirmed that a lot of structures are still visible today.
