Auschwitz. Treblinka. The very names of these Nazi camps evoke unspeakable cruelty. Sobib¿r is less well known, and this book discloses the horrors perpetrated there.Established in German-occupied Poland, the camp at Sobib¿r began its dreadful killing operation in May 1942. By October 1943, approximately 167,000 people had been murdered there. Sobib¿r is not well documented and, were it not for an extraordinary revolt on 14 October 1943, we would know little about it. On that day, prisoners staged a remarkable uprising in which 300 men and women escaped. The author identifies only forty-seven who survived the war.Sent in June 1943 to Sobib¿r, where his wife and family were murdered, Jules Schelvis has written the first book-length, fully documented account of the camp. He details the creation of the killing centre, its personnel, the use of railways, selections, forced labour, gas chambers, escape attempts and the historic uprising.In documenting this part of Holocaust history, this compelling and well-researched account advances our knowledge and understanding of the Nazi attempt to annihilate the European Jews.Published in association with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
