Warsaw: Treblinka – Death Camp Tour
The penal labor camp in Treblinka was a German Nazi working camp, functioning from September 1941 to July 23rd 1944. It was named after the nearby village and train station, both of which were also named Treblinka. During the interwar period, a gravel mine was established in the area of the Kosów Lacki community in Sokołowski County, which was part of the „Granite and Gravel Mines of Lublin” company.
We will show you the Museum of Struggle and Martydom, which was established in 1964 and commemorates the disastrous events from the times of World War II. The German established two camps in Treblinka. In the first one, approximately 7000 people were slaughtered. The second camp was a death camp with gas chambers, were about 800,000 people were killed between 1942 and 1943, most of which were Polish Jews.
In 1964, two monuments were erected on the sites of the camp. The monument at Treblinka II is large, spreading over 13ha (30 acres). It gives an impression of „hundreds of thousands of human beings, coming from nowhere, in a spectral pilgrimage, going to thier deaths”. It is the work of the architect Adam Haupt and the sculptors Fanciszek Duszenko and Franciszek Strynkiewicz.
The only camp, which killed more people than Treblinka was Auschwitz Birkenau.
