The Treblinka Death Camp

History, Biographies, Remembrance

Chris Webb and Michal Chocholatý. Foreword by Tom Lawson

ibidem Press

This book is the definitive account of one of history's most infamous death factories, where approximately 800,000 people lost their lives. From the Nazis who ran it to the Ukrainian guards and maids, the Jewish survivors, and the Poles living in the camp's shadow—this text represents every perspective. It provides biographies of the Jews who perished in the death camp as well as those who escaped from Treblinka in individual efforts or as part of the mass prisoner uprising on August 2, 1943. It also includes unique and previously unpublished sketches of the camp's ramp area and gas chamber, drawn by survivors.
