A documentary has exposed the nature and scale of Treblinka, one of the deadliest camps.
It operated between July 23, 1942 and October 19, 1943 in a remote forest north-east of Warsaw.
The camp served as part of Operation Reinhard, the codename for Adolf Hitler’s plan to exterminate Polish Jews, and was the deadliest phase of the Holocaust.
Presented in a Smithsonian Channel documentary ‘Treblinka: Hitler’s Killing Machine’, the first-ever archaeological excavations at the Treblinka II site has exposed the devastating reality of the Nazis’ crimes.
Historians estimate between 700,000 and 900,000 Jews were murdered at Treblinka’s gas chambers, alongside a further 2,000 Romani people.
