Orthodox Holocaust historians allege that Treblinka was a pure death camp with the sole purpose of extermination. They estimate the death count to be about 925,000 Jews. That’s nearly the amount that is said to have been murdered in Auschwitz/Birkenau. Yet, Treblinka does not enjoy the notoriety that Auschwitz does. It is difficult to affirm the claims made about Treblinka using forensic evidence as the camp was destroyed and Jewish religious leaders control who can dig and where.
Forensic evidence is not always required to debunk this claim of the orthodox Holocaust historians, however. Often the task can can be accomplished by examining the claims themselves and using common sense.
The following is an excerpt from Belzec, Sobibor, Treblinka : the Operation Reinhard death camps, by Yitzhak Arad. Arad served as Yad Vashem’s director from 1972 to 1993 and specialized in the history of the Holocaust. According to his officially sanctioned book 700,000 Jews had been buried, all at once, in Treblinka before the order to start cremating the bodies was given. Pardon my crudeness, but if the average person weighs 100 pounds that’s 7,000,000 pounds of flesh that was buried in Treblinka before it was dug up and burned.
Here is a satellite photo of Treblinka made using a study by Caroline Sturdy Colls. She is an approved expert by Holocaust officials. Her study involved no digging, rather she used ground-penetrating radar. Her findings do nothing to prove that almost a million Jews were murdered in homicidal gas chambers. She has to admit as much by labeling everything as ‘probable’. For an in-depth analysis of Sturdy Colls’ study see page 311 from the book, Treblinka—Extermination Camp or Transit Camp?.
It’s difficult to gauge the size of the camp from this photo so here is a satellite photo of the Rose Bowl stadium from about the same distance. The Rose Bowl was built to accommodate about 90,000 people.
Here are the pictures side by side:
Could 700,000 bodies really have been buried in the yellow areas of the first picture?
Here is a map created by a survivor of Treblinka and accepted by orthodox Holocaust historians. Could 700,000 bodies really have been buried in the orange sections on the map?
The problem of the 700,000 bodies but one item on a long list of issues with the Treblinka narrative. Check out my articles on Treblinka to learn more!
I credit Dean Irebodd and his documentary, One Third of the Holocaust—A holocaust denial movie on the subject of Treblinka, Sobibor, and Belzec, for providing me with this talking point.
