Transport to Chelmno on the Ner. The train did not go all the way to the death camp in Chelmno. For this reason, in nearby Powiercie the Jews were reloaded onto trucks or narrow-gauge railway. At Chelmno the gas chambers were already in operation by December of 1941, and consisted of three sealed trucks in which people were killed by the exhaust fumes, on the way to the nearby forest. By January 18, 1945, about 300,000 people had been murdered this way.
