Station Z is where the crematorium was. Some people like Jews were just brought here and shot and shoved into the ovens. Some witnesses say for fun some were put alive into the ovens, children and babies tossed in. Nearby you find the execution trench where Russians and other country people were herded like animals and shot down.

When you enter the camp, this location is found by walking along the left wall. The ovens foundations, doors and bottoms are still in place, a roof was built to cover them. We went to the camp around 3pm and the darkness came so fast my fotos didnt come out well but I think it was best this way. I dont need fotos to help me remember. I can never forget this place ever. I hope no one else does either and never create such a place again.
