As the Nazi's were fleeing from the allied forces at the end of World War II they were frantically trying to destroy the evidence of their crimes. Yet in their haste to save their own lives they left the gas chambers and crematorium at Majdanek in Lublin, Poland in tact. In this chamber where thousands of innocent people were killed the Zyklon B blue stained walls reamin as evidence of the horrific crimes. At the opposite end of the entry is the door opened only after the victims that had been packed 7 per square meter had died from the Zyklon B to remove the lifeless bodies.
