Treblinka Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Treblinka

The story of Treblinka begins in 1942 when the small village north of Warsaw was chosen by the S.S. as the site for a death camp. It was not a labor camp. No work was to be done by the prisoners. It was intended only as a place for the mass destruction of its Jewish prisoners.

In 1943, a small group of prisoners led an armed rebellion. The S.S. guards were killed and the prison compound was destroyed. The prisoners who planned and led the uprising were ordinary people: a doctor, a shopkeeper's son, scholars and even children.

Humiliated by the defeat, the Nazis tried to erase it from memory by plowing the remains of its victims and the S.S. guards under the rubble and ashes of the camp.
