Lublin-Bełżec-Lublin Tour

The German death camp in Bełżec was a centre of extermination for the Jewish people. From March to December 1942 about 450 thousand people were murdered there, most of whom were Polish Jews as well as the Jewish deportees from Germany, Austria, Czechia and Slovakia.

The date of the first deportations to Bełżec, 17 March 1942, corresponds to the beginning of operation „Reinhardt” – its aim was the extermination of Jews from the General Government and the plunder of their property. The camp in Bełżec was the first of the three killing centres established within the course of „Einsatz Reinhardt.” It was a place where the Nazis conducted different experiments aiming at devloping the most efficient methods of mass murder. The decision to launch operation „Reinhardt” and to build the camp was most probably taken during the conference of October 13, 1941 in Hitler’s headquarters called Wolf’s Lair near Kętrzyn in East Prussia. Apart from Heinrich Himmler, SS and Police commanding officers in the General Government took part in it. One of them was the commander of the SS and police forces in the Lublin district Odilo Globocnik, who was to supervise the death camp in Bełżec.
