The unveiling this week of a memorial at one of the branches of the Auschwitz death camp was attended by several thousand persons, it was reported here today from Warsaw.

Manowitz, also known as “Auschwitz Three, ” was a subsidiary camp where thousands of victims, most of them Jews, perished during the Nazi occupation of Poland. It was at this site that the inmates performed forced labor in a factory built by the I. G. Farben company for the Nazis. The memorial monument was erected by public subscription with a substantial sum collected for the monument and for clearing the site.
