extermination camp


100 km north-east from Warsaw, in remote surrounding, there is the place which was the last station for over 800 thousand Jews who were killed there by Nazis. That extermination camp was created mainly for final liquidation of ghetto in Warsaw. It operated over one year and finally was destroyed by Nazis to hide any trace of that crime. Now symbolic cemetary with 7 thousand stones marking the towns, townlets and shtetles from which Jews were brought here, reminds the victims who do not have even the graves. In the centre the monument with the inscription "Never again" calls for remembrance and is always actual warning.
The exhibition shows model of the camp, documents and few survivors testimony, registered and published.

A Recent Review of this tour

The guide Renate was excellent. She was informative interesting and knowledgeable. The whole trip went like clockwork. I had wanted to find a particular stone at the Treblinka memorial and did prep to take me straight to it. We were not rushed and were able to take our time. First class. Renata was also able to offer advice on where to get help with my research which shows how clued up and knowledgeable she is. Thank you
