Treblinka

Treblinka was an prisoner concentration camp, built and operated by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland during World War II. It was located in a forest north-east of Warsaw, 4 kilometres (2.5 mi)south of the Treblinka train station in what is now the Masovian Voivodeship. The camp operated between 22 July 1942 and 19 October 1943 as part of Operation Reinhard, the deadliest phase of the Final Solution.During this time, it is estimated that between 700,000 and 900,000 Jews were killed in its gas chambers, along with 2,000 Romani people. More Jews were killed at Treblinka than at any other Nazi extermination camp apart from Auschwitz.
