Treblinka

Question

I am a highschool student currently involved in a college Holocaust education course. For our semester exam, we are to do a term paper, mine of which is on the death camp Treblinka. I am having trouble finding the general layout of the camp and some general numbers of people who were killed, and just general information. Thank you for your time.

I am one of the volunteers who responds to questions addressed to our organization. As regards your particular question, you might wish to visit a very good site that not only includes a large image showing the layout of the camp:

http://www.holocaust-info.dk/operation_reinhard/imgs_treblinka/

I have taken the liberty of forwarding that page to you.

On the same site you can see the number of people that were deported to Treblinka at:

and a brief report on the Treblinka Trials of the perpetrators:

A useful text which you might care to read is:
