Bodies of Jewish victims piled up for burning at Klooga, Estonia. Klooga was one of the work camps for Jews sent from Kaunas and Vilna in May 1943 to work in slate mining and on fortifications. When the war turned against Germany, special SS units were sent out to obliterate traces of German crimes. In September 1944, the arrival of Soviet forces interrupted the preparations for the burning of victims.
