The sub-camp at Chełmek was fairly short lived over a 2 month period, and yet the logistics of the operation involving over 150 prisoners actually stretched over 3 main sites in the town. Chełmek is only 8 kilometres from Oświęcim and sits on the direct train route to Trzebinia that also passes the coal mines of Libiąż (the sub-camp of Janinagrube).
