Gas Van - mobile gas chambers

Gas Van "Mobile" - gas chambers in the form of trucks were continuosly used in Chełmno (Kulmhof) German Extermination Camp,Mauthausen-Gusen camp and  also used at the very beginning in the camp in Bełżec and in the territories of the USSR, where Einsatzgruppen units rarely used such a solution. The genesis of Gas Van has its roots in pre-war times. As part of improving the race, the Germans carried out the T4 action ("Aktion T4") aimed at eliminating mentally ill German citimauzens who were both a genetic and financial burden.
