Extermination Camp Treblinka

By Witold Chrostowski

Although Auschwitz is probably the most well known of the Nazi extermination camps, it is Treblinka which is the most notorious. During the 13 months of its existence, 850,000 were robbed and murdered within its precincts. This camp, along with Belzec and Sobibor, also located in Poland, are often neglected and their history little known, despite being the locations where the Germans killed most of Europe's largest Jewish communities. Here, as opposed to Auschwitz, people were not imprisoned for long periods or exploited as labourers, but were killed off as quickly and effectively as possible. This study by a Polish new generation historian examines the structure and history of the camp.
