On August 2, 1943, on Monday afternoon, the revolt of the Jewish prisoners of the Treblinka II German Nazi Extermination Camp began.
From the spring of 1943, the bodies of the murdered were successively burned. Transports with deported Jews arrived much less frequently. The prisoners were afraid that the liquidation of the camp was imminent and would soon take place. They realized that the revolt was the only way to escape. There were about 840 prisoners in the camp on that day. Not all of them took part in the revolt. It is estimated that only about 200 people managed to escape from the camp and subsequent chase. More than 100 of them survived the war.
This year, on August 2, we would like to invite you to the 79th anniversary of the outbreak of the revolt at the Treblinka II Extermination Camp. The celebrations start at 12:00 at the Monument to the Victims of the Death Camp on the premises of the Treblinka Museum.
