This chapter describes the re-establishment of the Chełmno camp after its closure in April 1943. Hans Bothmann assembled most of the members of the Sonderkommando and informed them that they would be returning to Chełmno to re-establish the camp and resume their former activities. During the second period, ten main transports were sent to the camp. The camp was reactivated to exterminate the remaining inhabitants in the Łodź ghetto, the origin of the ten transports. In this second period of extermination, a new stage of the killing process was used.
