Corpses being incinerated outside the area of the Birkenau camp crematorium. Apparently photographed by Sonderkommando member David Smilowski. Photographed in August 1944.
Note: The incineration of corpses was carried out by the Sonderkommando outside the crematorium because the extermination rate in the gas chambers was greater than the capacity of the crematory ovens.
