Treblinka

the german jail

how it was found

Founded officially on 15 November 1941,[h][47] Treblinka I was a forced-labour camp (Arbeitslage initially for Poles and Jews captured in nearby locations. It replaced an ad-hoc company set up in June 1941 by Sturmbannführer Ernst Gramss. A new barracks and barbed wire fencing 2 metres (6 ft 7 in) tall were erected in the fall of 1941.[48] To obtain the workforce needed for Treblinka I, civilians were sent to the camp en masse for various real or imagined offences, sentenced to hard labour by the Gestapo office in Sokołów, which was headed by Gramms himself.[49] Even though the average length of a sentence was six months, many prisoners had their sentences extended indefinitely. Some 20,000 victims passed through Treblinka I over the course of its three-year existence. About half of them died there from exhaustion, hunger and disease.[49] Those who survived were released after serving their sentences; these were generally Poles from nearby villages.[5

All about Treblinka

built by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland during World War II. It was located near the village of Treblinka in the modern-day Masovian Voivodeship north-east of Warsaw. The camp operated officially between 23 July 1942 and 19 October 1943 as part of Operation Reinhard, the most deadly phase of the Final Solution.[3] During this time, it is estimated that somewhere between 700,000 and 900,000[6][7] Jews were killed in its gas chambers, along with 2,000 Romani people.[8] More Jews were killed at Treblinka than at any other Nazi extermination camp apart from Auschwitz.[9]

he two parallel camps of Treblinka were located 80 kilometres (50 mi) northeast of the Polish capital Warsaw,[37][38] near the MałkiniaSokołów Podlaski railway junction connecting major cities in central Poland with the Treblinka village railroad station. Before World War II, it was the site of a gravel mining enterprise essential to the production of concrete. During that time it was owned and operated by the Polish industrialist Marian Łopuszyński, who built a 6-kilometre (3.7 mi) railway track to the existing line.[39] When the Germans built Treblinka I, the quarry was already equipped with heavy machinery that could be used right away.[40] For them, Treblinka was conveniently located. It was well-connected but distant enough to provide isolation,[g][41] as it was situated halfway between some of the largest Jewish ghettos in all of Nazi-occupied Europe, including the ghetto in Warsaw and the ghetto in Białystok, the capital of the newly formed district of Bialystok (German: Bezirk Bialystok). The Warsaw Ghetto had about 500,000 Jewish inmates,[42] while the Białystok Ghetto had about 60,000.[43]

From the beginning Treblinka was split into two parallel camps, Treblinka I and Treblinka II. The German contractors who oversaw the construction of Treblinka I and Treblinka II were the Schoenbronn Company of Leipzig and the Warsaw branch of Schmidt–Munstermann.[1] Between 1942 and 1943 the extermination camp was further redeveloped with a crawler excavator. New gas chambers made of bricks and mortar and mass cremation pyres were also introduced during this time.[44] Additionally, the perimeter was enlarged to provide a buffer zone, thus making it impossible to approach the camp from the outside. The number of trains caused panic among the residents of nearby settlements.[14] They would likely have been killed if caught near the train tracks.[45]
