The 2 big three muffle incineration furnaces originally planned for Auschwitz POW Camp [Birkenau] have been allocated to another construction project.

All the preliminary technical and commercial work and all the drawings are transferred to a new construction project, so that the operating costs and overheads to a 1,769.36 RM no longer apply.

Further details of the new construction or the new construction project will be furnished in due course.
