What happened to the crematoriums and what were they used for?

First, they were used to burn some of the bodies of those who were killed in the death camps. Not all death camps used crematoriums, some just buried the bodies in mass graves, and even those that did have crematoriums buried many of the people who had been murdered when they realized that Allied troops were getting close. Some of the crematoriums still exist as historical reminders, but most have been destroyed.
