There are many similarities between the three Holocaust camps Belzec (or Bełżec), Sobibor (or Sobibór), and Treblinka. They are therefore discussed together in this article. Non-revisionists argue that these camps were "pure extermination" camps, revisionists argue that they were transit camps.

The name Treblinka is today applied to two separate camps, that were two kilometers apart. Treblinka I was a labor camp at a quarry. Treblinka II was the alleged extermination camp. "Treblinka" in this article refers to the Treblinka II camp unless otherwise stated.

Alleged killings of able workers

According to the standardized politically correct version, allegedly all Jews, able to work or not, were gassed immediately on arrival. This has been argued to be an absurd claim, considering that numerous documents state that the German industry was in constant and desperate need of manpower during the war and that many measures were taken in the labor camps (including Auschwitz) in order to maintain the work force and keep it in a condition fit for work.[1][2]

Argued transit, sorting, and hygienic camps

More detailed maps and air photos of Belzec, Sobibor, and Treblinka and revisionist arguments based on these can be found in Air Photo Evidence—World War Two Photos of Alleged Mass Murder Sites Analyzed (pdf version can be downloaded for free).

Examples being that air photos are argued to show no disturbed earth from mass graves, unobstructed views into camps from roads, and the presence of neighbors who would have witnessed exterminations.

Revisionists argue that the three camps were transit camps, located where people transported further east had to change trains, since the Soviet Union used different railways tracks (broad gauge) than the rest of Europe. Hygienic and sorting measures done at the same time are argued to be the possible origin of various Holocaust horror stories.[2]

Jews are by Holocaust revisionists argued to have been sent from these camps to many different locations, both in the General Government and in the occupied Soviet Union. Sorting procedures in association with this at these camps (as well as at other Holocaust camps which were partially or exclusively transit camps) may have involved splitting up individuals from the same group and with these individuals never seeing one another again. This has been argued to often have been misinterpreted as that the other individuals were taken away in order to be killed.

Holocaust revisionist analysis of the statements of "Holocaust survivors" have shown that (contrary to the standardized politically correct version) several have stated that they, and hundreds of others accompanying them, transited through Treblinka without being killed, before going to other camps in the General Government.[3] Similar statements have been made by many Jews deported to Sobibor. Examples include that "Cato Polak, deported on March 10, 1943, remained in Sobibór one or two hours and was then transferred to Lublin with 30 women and 12 men. [...] Sientje and Jetje Veterman, sent to Sobibór on April 6, 1943, were sorted out together with 28 other women for work and transferred to Trawniki with them. [...] Elias Alex Cohen, deported to Sobibór on March 17, 1943, spent only a few hours in the camp and was sent to Lublin with 35 other Jews. [...] Jules Schelvis writes that ‘in Sobibór, after the arrival of transports, the fresh work forces for Dorohucza’ were ‘selected.’ At Dorohucza, 5 km from Trawniki, was a labor camp where peat was cut. According to Schelvis, at least 700 Dutch Jews were transferred there directly after their arrival in Sobibór [...] Dorohucza was only one of many Jewish labor camps, which overlay the Lublin district like a dense network. Edward Dziadosz and Józef Marszałek count no fewer than 110 of them. [...] It is characteristic that nearly all the Dutch Jews, who had been transferred from Sobibór to another camp, returned home by way of Auschwitz-Birkenau; instead of being liquidated as bearers of top-secret knowledge, they survived even this ‘extermination camp.’"[4]

Rudolf Göckel was a station master who became a liaison between the Belzec train station and the Belzec camp. In this position, he would have had an excellent overview of the trains arriving at or leaving the camp. He described the camp as a transit camp.[1]

See World War II statements argued to support Holocaust revisionism and the entries for dates 17 March 1942 and 5 July 1943 on statements by German officials describing the camps as sorting and transit camps.

The Holocaust revisionist Germar Rudolf has written on hygienic procedures that these "explain why so many witnesses talked about delousing and showering procedures - that is, hygienic measures - during the interruption of their deportation, which today are falsely regarded as deceptive measures preceding the mass murder. The two Treblinka documents mentioned earlier (p. 279) pointing at large-scale inmate showers support this just as much as do the witness statements collected by Hunt of former deportees who were transited through Treblinka (p. 276). The mysterious steam chambers of Treblinka, which were probably nothing else but steam disinfestation chambers, could be explained that way, as could the statement by a Polish civilian who testified after the war that he was ordered to build a heavy furnace in the Belzec camp used to heat water, which was then led through a pipe into three chambers (Mattogno 2004a, p. 45). Finally, it would explain why SS Obersturmführer Kurt Gerstein, a hygienic expert, was ordered to the Majdanek and Belzec camps together with SS Obersturmbannführer Wilhelm Pfannenstiel, professor at and director of the Hygienc Institute at the University of Marburg and hygienic adviser to the Waffen-SS. If you just open your eyes, the truth is easy to see: It all happened because the SS wanted to ensure that Jews deported to the east underwent some hygienic procedures at the border before being released into the eastern occupied territories."[3]

Train travel was at this time a major cause of spreading infestations/diseases such as lice/typhus (a major disease at this time). Various disinfestation/disinfection procedures at train stations were often used in order to counteract such spread. Typhus is especially common when individuals are in close proximity, as was the case for Jews in concentration camps/ghettos and on long train travels (often after having spent some time in camps/ghettos). Preventing spread of such infestations/diseases would have been important for reasons such as diseases in the camps/ghettos being a major cause of reduced labor and production.[5][6]

While Holocaust revisionist have rejected that the stated hygienic procedures were deceptive measures preceding mass killings, the hygienic procedures may possible have had as a purpose to separate individuals from their property and to disinfest it as part of a plunder operation, as stated in the following section.

Operation Reinhard/Operation Reinhardt

The politically correct view is that Operation Reinhard/Operation Reinhardt is a code word for the systematic extermination of Jews in these three "pure extermination camps" in eastern Poland. Revisionists argue that various documents clearly show that the term refers to an operation which was about the collection and recycling of the property of Jews deported to the east. It is argued to had nothing to do with extermination. The term is argued to have been applied also to collection and recycling in camps such as Auschwitz and Majdanek, which according the politically correct view were not "pure extermination camps".[2]

Operation Reinhard has been argued to be named after Reinhard Heydrich. The correct name and etymology has been argued to be "Operation Reinhardt" after the Ministry of Finance official Fritz Reinhardt. "The basis for this error may lie in the fact that in some documents of the war period ‘Reinhard’ (without the t) appears as an alternate way of writing Reinhardt".[4]

An example of revisionist criticisms is that "the authentic Franke-Gricksch inspection report (which wasn’t discovered until 2010 [...] explicitly discusses the eastern program as a plunder operation, makes no reference to gassing [...] the top secret 1944 Globocnik report to Himmler along with its addendum also provides clear support for the interpretation that the AR system was primarily devoted to wealth seizure and includes an important note about “relocated persons” being given chits as a kind of bullshit assurance that “future compensation” would be rendered for their assets “some day in Brazil or in the Far East.” If the reference to “relocated persons” meant Jews – and there is a strong contextual reason to assume so, given the geographic presumption in the wording – then this addendum is difficult to reconcile with the notion that Jews were being systematically snuffed upon arrival at the camps."[7]

Alleged killing methods

Carbon monoxide as alleged killing method

The killing method in all three camps is now alleged to have been carbon monoxide from engine exhaust. For Belzec and Treblinka, the position of official historiography is now that diesel engines were the murder weapons. For Sobibor, the engine type is ambiguous.[8]

The Gerstein Report is argued to have played an important part in this.

Regarding criticisms of diesel engines as murder weapons, see Holocaust material evidence: Gas vans and gas chambers using diesel exhaust.

Early claims of other killing methods

Treblinka:[3]

  • Steam (see separate section below).
  • Chlorine gas.
  • Electricity.
  • Machine guns.
  • Mobile gas chambers.
  • Poison gas, both fast and slow acting.
  • Quicklime.
  • Vacuum chambers. Such chambers having ordinary masonry walls are technically impossible, since the walls would immediately collapse.
  • Zyklon B.

Belzec:[3]

  • Electricity. Compared to Treblinka, the diesel engine claims emerged relatively late, with there initially being more statements on electric currents, including cremation to ashes by electric current.
  • Quicklime.
  • Vacuum chambers.

Sobibor:[3]

  • "New" alleged methods not already mentioned are non-gas chlorine and collapsible gas chamber floors, which discharged their load onto railway carts below.

Steam chambers claims at Treblinks

During the war and the early postwar period, many "witness" statements agreed that steam was used for mass killings at Treblinka. In 1945, the Polish government even "conclusively proved" that the Germans operated these alleged steam homicidal chambers. The Poles allegedly carried out "an onsite, physical examination of the steam chambers" and submitted an "expert report" with evidence to the Nuremberg trials. However, these claims have now been completely abandoned, which is likely related to the realization that steam is not plausible as a mass killing method. As noted earlier, Holocaust revisionists argue that the steam claims by "witnesses" may be related to steam chambers being used for hygienic purposes.[3][9]

Regarding the trial of the senior SS officer Oswald Pohl (one of the Nuremberg trials), the revisionist Carlos Porter writes that the Gerstein Report was "extensively quoted in the Pohl Trial, where it was "proven" that Treblinka had 10 'gas chambers' (1553-PS) and 10 'steam chambers' (3311-PS) in the same camp at the same time."[10]

See also The Black Book of Polish Jewry on steam and electrocution claims.

Gas chamber expansion claims at Treblinka

According to the standardized politically correct version, 694,000 individuals were killed during a four-month period before November 1942 at Treblinka in three gas chambers. In November 1942, an additional 10 larger gas chamber were added, but during the seven months afterwards, only 187,390 more individuals were killed. Holocaust revisionists argue that this means that the supposed gas chamber expansion was completely unneeded and was an additional invention added by "witnesses", since three gas chambers were not considered horrific enough.[3]

Corpses

The claimed witnesses have given enormously varied and contradictory reports regarding what happened at these camps. However, the standardized politically correct version now alleges that the bodies from the mass killings were first buried, but were later dug up, in order to be burned on gigantic outdoor cremation pyres, and with the remains then re-buried in the camps.

See Alleged German conspiracy to hide the Holocaust and the section "Aktion 1005'"/"Sonderaktion 1005" on the alleged German conspiracy to destroy the corpses, which as one part included the alleged destruction of corpses at Belzec, Sobibor, and Treblinka. See also the section "Quotes" on Holocaust revisionist criticisms of that the alleged dates, when allegedly the bodies stopped being buried without burning, vary greatly for different camps: "it is incomprehensible that corpses were buried in Auschwitz up until September 20, 1942, and in Treblinka up to March 1943; it is similarly inexplicable that cremations in Sobibór are supposed to have begun in the summer of 1942, those in Belzec in the middle of December 1942, and those in Treblinka in March 1943. Or, to put it differently, we understand all too well: the witnesses of the different camps did not manage to get together to agree on an identical starting date for Himmler’s decision to eradicate all traces by cremation!"[1]

"Normal" concentration camps such as Buchenwald, for which no mass killings are alleged today, were equipped with crematoria for the disposal of the bodies. Revisionists have argued that it is absurd that there were no crematoria in the alleged "Operation Reinhard" extermination camps, where crematoria would have been far more urgently needed, if mass killings took place. Consequently, one and a half million corpses allegedly had to be burned with primitive manual means in the open air, nearly half a million of them in winter. The detainees charged with gathering wood are argued to have required more than 26 years to gather the necessary amount.[1] Furthermore, when it turned out that the SS had bought too many cremation furnaces, all camps were asked if such cremation furnaces were needed there. No such need was indicated by anyone at Belzec, Sobibor, or Treblinka.[3]

The very large claimed numbers of victims from these camps would have left behind massive remains, since outdoor burning of the corpses on pyres would leave behind bones and bone splinters and also ash which must be disposed of. This arguably raises the question why such very difficult digging up, burning, and then re-burial at the same place of massive remains were done, if the purpose was to conceal the mass killings. Furthermore, revisionists argue that many investigations have without success searched for these massive remains, using a variety of methods, including digging up sites where some witnesses claimed the remains where buried. Some such investigations do have found small amounts of human remains, which revisionists argue is compatible with the limited numbers who did die due to non-homicidal causes according to revisionists, but not with the massive numbers claimed by non-revisionists to have been killed. Such limited findings are argued to often be greatly misrepresented by non-revisionists.[2]

There are also other argued problems with the alleged pyres and mass graves, such as the areas reported by witnesses being to small contain the claimed amount of remains, claimed burning and cleaning time is too short to be realistic, absence of expected findings on reconnaissance photos, nonsense statements about corpses being burned without any kind of fuel, and that for various reasons it being physically impossible to have had pyres of the size and description claimed.[2]

See also Holocaust material evidence: Corpses.

Treblinka

Holocaust revisionists argue that if assuming a politically correct claim of 870,000 corpses buried in the Treblinka camp, graves with a depth of 6 meters as alleged by witnesses, and a corpse density per cubic meter similar that of other WWII mass graves, then this implies the contradiction that the mass graves should have covered an area twice as large as the camp itself. If in addition counting the area required in order to store excavated soil and the area required as working space, then, contradictorily, an area five times as large as the camp itself would have been required.[3]

In 1943, the earlier buried 870,000 corpses were allegedly dug up. They were then stacked into gigantic corpse heaps (having 30 corpse layers), with the corpse heaps being placed on 2 gigantic grills made of railroad tracks (grill length 30 meters, grill width 3 meters), and with there being deep trenches under the grills and the corpse heaps. The corpse heaps were then burned over huge bonfires placed in the trenches. Each corpse heap would have been 9 meters high without firewood or at least 26 meters with firewood between the corpses. The whole operation is alleged to have occurred in 122 days, implying that 3,625 corpses were burned on each grill each day.[3]

Regarding the fuel needed to burn the corpses, some "witnesses" have claimed that the SS developed a method for burning corpses without using any kind of fuel. Revisionists argue that this is impossible. Under ideal circumstances, certain fat parts of a corpse can burn slowly without additional fuel. If wanting to burn a whole corpse quickly, then massive amounts of fuel are needed. If it was possible to burn a whole corpse without fuel, then this would solve a major problem for India, which is the massive firewood requirement for funeral pyres, which has almost completely denuded India of wood.[3]

If adding the firewood needed to actually burn the bodies and placing this between the stacked bodies, the corpse heaps would be over 26 meters high, equivalent to a 9-story house.[3]

The grills are argued to have not been able to withstand the weight (163 metric tons due to the corpses and 571 metric tons due to the wood, per grill), especially as the large bonfires would have softened the metal.[3]

Revisionists argue that actually constructing a corpse heap with 30 corpse layers, with or without firewood (9 meters or at least 26 meters high), would have been very difficult, since there is no mention of cranes by witnesses. There is mention of excavators and even pictures of one, but the excavators are said to have been used only to remove bodies from the mass graves. Revisionists argue that the origin of the excavator story and pictures is likely that excavators were used at the nearby quarry labor camp (Treblinka I), where workers extracted gravel from a pit.[3]

Furthermore, the heaps are argued to have been just 3 meters wide, implying that it would have been very difficult to prevent them from collapsing to either side, especially as fires never burn evenly. Realistically, it would not have been possible to build a heap that is higher than it is wide.[3]

The above statements assume one burning on each grill each day. This is argued be unrealistic, with large scale burning of cattle carcasses having shown that such large pyres burn and smolder for at least week before they can be removed.[3]

According to alleged witness Richard Glazar, the required wood was gathered by a wood-felling operation consisting of 25 wood cutters. According to revisionist calculations, hundreds of woodcutters wold have been required to gather the necessary 140,000 metric tons of firewood. 280 hectares of wood would have been cleared of trees due to this operation, but there is no trace of this on air photos taken of Treblinka. Also missing is the massive amount of ash from the burning of the massive amount of firewood, which has been estimated to be equivalent to the entire camp area being covered with ash to a height of 4 meters.[3]

Both the Russians and the Poles conducted investigations in 1944 and 1945, without finding the alleged mass graves (or remains of the alleged gas chambers). This included digging up the sites where some claimed witnesses claimed the mass graves where located.[3]

In 1999, ground radar and augur (for taking numerous soil core samples) were used to examine the entire Treblinka site, especially the alleged "mass graves" portion as well as the surrounding area, but did not find any remains, or even evidence that the ground had been disturbed.[11]

More recently, claims have been made of finding some remains by a team of researchers carrying out archaeological work at Treblinka for six years. Revisionists have argued that the claimed findings are dubious and insignificant. The more important and ignored result is instead argued to be that the extensive examination using modern technology was again unable to find the enormous burial pits stated in the political correct version.[12][13][14][15][3]

Marian Olszuk passed close by the Treblinka II camp every day, as he went to work at the quarry at Treblinka I. Also when he worked on the family plot, he was also right near the Treblinka II "extermination camp." The camp was small and practically devoid of trees or large shrubbery. As a result, the neighboring farm folk and passers-by could easily observe, through the barbed-wire fence, the prisoners and the guards, as well as the various buildings of a camp that is now said to have been ultra-secret. Olszuk never noticed any signs of homicidal activities.[16] This despite the politically correct version stating very large cremation and burial pits in the Treblinka II camp.

Belzec

Forensic investigations have been conducted in October 1945 and in 1997/1999. The last investigation drilled 2,227 core samples out of the soil, with these covering the whole camp site at five meter intervals. The investigation did find that the earth had been disturbed in 33 places. However, only 6 (0.3%) of the core samples contained limited amounts of human remains. These were in the form of thinly layered ashes, mixed with lots of sand and earth. The largest corpse layer was only 0.75 m thick. Realistically, Holocaust revisionists argue, this support only several thousand people dying at camp. This argued to be compatible with the few remaining documents on the camp, which are argued to describe it initially as a labor camp, with harsh conditions and deaths from various non-genocidal causes.[3]

The disturbed earth with no corpse remains is argued to likely be due to the documented activities of postwar treasure hunters, who searched for items such as jewelry, but who would not have been interested in removing skeletal remains or ash. No remains were found of the alleged homicidal gas chambers, which witnesses have claimed existed at the camp.[3]

During the WWII and in the postwar period, there were allegation of fabrication of human soap at Belzec. One notable propagator of this was Simon Wiesenthal. These claims are no longer mentioned in politically correct descriptions.[17][3]

A less politically correct corpse disposal method was stated in the book The last Jew from Poland (American title: The Promise Hitler Kept), described by the Jewish Virtual Library as "among the first authentic Holocaust accounts", with the following description allegedly based on the claims of Adolf Folkman: "The trains full of Jews would travel through a tunnel into the underground rooms of the execution place. There the Jews disembarked. [...] The naked Jews were brought into enormous halls. Several thousand humans at one time could fit into these halls. They did not have windows, and they were made of metal with a floor that could be lowered. The floors of these halls with thousands of Jews standing on them were lowered into a water basin below it – but only so far that the humans standing on the metal place would not be completely submerged. When all the Jews standing on the metal were submerged in water up to their hips a strong electric current was sent through the water. After a few moments thousands of Jews were dead. Then the metal floors were raised out of the water and on them lay the executed corpses. Another electric cable was switched on and the metal plate was turned into a crematory coffin, white-hot, until all corpses were burnt to ashes. Massive cranes then lifted the enormous crematory coffins and emptied the ash. Huge factory chimneys eliminated the smoke."[3][18]

Sobibor

Archaeological digs have been conducted twice, with the last occurring between 2004 and 2014. Mass graves have been found, but Holocaust revisionists argue that the published data does not permit a conclusion regarding the number of victims.[3]

The remains of a building allegedly containing homicidal gas chambers have been found, but Holocaust revisionists argue that this building is very different from the claims made by claimed witnesses regarding the alleged gas chambers and the building they were allegedly located in, such as regarding the number of gas chambers and the allegations made by most witness that the floors opened after the killings to discharge the corpses to spaces below. In the proximity is the remains of a well, which revisionists argue fits with the alleged gas chambers being real shower rooms with real showers.[3]

The camp prisoner Leon Feldhendler declared that chlorine was a “death-gas” used at Sobibor. This allegation is rarely mentioned today, as being inconsistent with politically correct history. More frequently mentioned is a claim by Feldhendler that the bone remains resulting from the alleged outdoor cremations were crushed by hammers. A Holocaust revisionist criticisms is regarding "the enormous problems associated with crushing the charred teeth and bones of hundreds of thousands of victims into ash with hammers. There were the charred bones and teeth of 200,000 to 250,000 victims. Imagine how long it would take the small number of Sobibor inmates who allegedly worked in the “gas chamber area” to manually crush into ash with hammers the millions of bones and teeth from these hundreds of thousands of victims! Holocaust researcher Thomas Dalton discussed the enormous problems in regard to the unburned bones and teeth of the corpses. The ash from the burnt corpses would have to be sifted every day for bones and teeth. Imagine how long it would take to find and smash millions of bones and teeth with hammers!'"[19]

Brief summary of some revisionist criticisms

A brief stated summary by Carlo Mattogno, Jürgen Graf, and Thomas Kues of some revisionist criticisms is that:[1]

  • There are no documents on the gassing of Jews in any of the “Aktion Reinhardt” camps.
  • There is no German order to exterminate Jews in these camps.
  • There is no German order to build these camps as “extermination camps.”
  • The archaeological investigations conducted by Polish authorities at Bełżec and Sobibór have found no trace of any homicidal “gas chambers.”
  • It would have been impossible to bury the bodies of the alleged victims at Bełżec and Treblinka; some 281,200 and 654,800 bodies would have remained unburied in these two camps respectively. Hence the killing and burial of 434,508 persons at Bełżec and of 758,400 at Treblinka cannot have happened.
  • For these two camps, the volume of ashes produced in cremating the claimed number of corpses would have exceeded the volume of the “officially certified” mass graves by 109% and 305%, respectively, while at Sobibór it would have occupied more than 50%. But these quantities find no confirmation in archaeology, and thus the claimed cremations cannot have taken place.
  • In none of the three camps would it have been possible to acquire the quantities of wood needed to cremate the alleged number of bodies within the allowed time frame. To supply all three camps, the inmates assigned to this duty would have required 9,716 days, more than 26½ years! Hence the supply of such a quantity of wood cannot have occurred.
  • Finally, the cremation of the alleged number of corpses would have been impossible within the asserted chronological limits and would have lasted for another 592 days. For this reason, the cremation of the alleged gassing victims cannot have occurred.
