TREBLINKA EXTERMINATION CAMP, POLAND.
Approximately 900,000 Jews were murdered here.
These photos were taken in Treblinka I, the penal labor camp, and Treblinka II, the extermination camp over two encounters with Treblinka; one in the grey gloom of winter, and one in the golden haze of summer.
Treblinka II, or the extermination camp, stands as a memorial with smaller stones marking the main area of the killing, and a large stone memorial where it is believed the gas chambers sat.
When the Germans fled the approaching Soviet army, they destroyed Treblinka with explosives.
In the Treblinka I, or the penal labor camp, there are visible traces left behind in an otherwise vast field surrounded by tall trees.
You can learn more about Treblinka in a film I made this same day, which is viewable HERE.
