  The south side and east end of Krematorium V. partly hidden by birch trees. Because of their location on he edge of the Birch Wood, Krematorien IV and V were called "the forest Krematorien". The trees limit the possibilities for historical exploitation of this photgraph. probably taken in May-June 1943. The traces of soot on the chimneys are not so pronounced as on Krematorium IV The place marked on the labelled photograph by a black dot is where the four Hungarian Jews of Photo 14 were standing in May-June 1944.
