Belzec Concentration Camp

Belzec Concentration Camp started activity on 17th March 1942.
This date is also considered as a beginning of 'Reinhardt Action', that was an operation aiming in extermination and plundering Jewish people from General Governement (one of the parts of occupied Poland).
The decision to build Extermination Camp in Belzec was determined mainly by its closeness to the railway that used to connect Lublin and junction station in Rawa-Ruska, where transport of Jews could be easily brought from Krakow and its environs.
Death Camp in Belzec had operated from March to December 1942. Meanwhile German Nazis killed in Belzec about 500 thousands people, in majority, Jews from Poland, as well as Jews from Germany, Austria and areas of present Czech and Slovakian Republic.
