Lublin: Sobibor Death Camp Tour
The German death camp in Sobibor was located nearly 100 km east of Lublin and only a few km from today’s border with Belarus and Ukraine. The construction of the camp began at the turn of winter and spring 1942. At least 180,000 people lost their lives here (mainly Jews from Poland). The former camp is widely recognized as a place where one of three uprisings of Jewish prisoners in extermination camps took place (the others happened in Treblinka extermination camp and in Auschwitz-Birkenau). In October 1943, members of the Sobibor underground killed most of the SS officers and then led 300 prisoners to freedom. For over 20 years after the war, the former camp in Sobibor had been forgotten. In 2012, the Museum of the Former Death Camp in Sobibor became a branch office of the Majdanek State Museum.
