Treblinka

800,000 were murdered at the Treblinka Extermination and Workers Camps. We do not have any official records of where Frieda, Otto, and Ruth were murdered. Based on historical accounts, our best guess is that they were sent to Treblinka.

Words cannot express our visit here. Below are a few pictures of the site and memorial.
