The article states that Odilo Globocnic was responsible for setting up the Chelmno extermaination camp. This is incorrect, though he was responsible (as stated) for Belzec, Sobibor, Treblinka and Majdanek. Chelmno was a local initiative of the Wartheland occupation administration under Gaulieter/Reichsstathalter Arthur Greiser, HSSPF Wilhelm Koppe and Sipo chief Ernst Damzog, and was intended only to murder the Jews (and Roma) of that territory, particularly the population of the ghetto of Lodz. Chelmno had nothing to do with Aktion Reinhard and its origins in the "Euthenasia" (T4) operation are very different, starting with the murder of disabled hospital inmates from across West Prussia in gas vans under the command of Herbert Lange who then become Chelmno commandant.
