Oswiecim, Poland oil refinery was the target of this bombing raid to destroy and cripple the German supply of petroleum products for Hitler`s War Machine. Although close to German Slave Labor and Jewish Elimination Camps, the Refinery Complex was separated from the Camps so that U S Army Air Force long range bombers with precision Norden Bomb Sights could hit this important Target on several occasions.
