In those eight months, probably five hundred thousand people were killed. It took the Jewish Sonderkommando another seven months to pull the corpses from their shared graves, stack them on iron or wooden frames, and burn away every trace of their lives and their deaths. Sobibór A third camp, Sobibór, was modeled after Belzec. Like its prototype, this camp, concealed by thick woods along the Bug River, began small in May 1942 and added new equipment four months later. Jews came from as far as Holland for “special treatment” there—34,313 of them from that one country alone.
Others were executed by armed death squads created solely for the purpose of murder. The greatest numbers perished in the concentration camps. Chapter 1 THE ROAD TO THE CAMPS Although unimaginable to a rational mind, a system of hundreds of camps used for isolating, torturing, and murdering men, women, and children was the natural conclusion of Adolf Hitler’s twisted logic. Hitler had adopted a philosophy common in the 1920s: that Jews were inferior and evil. In his autobiography, Mein Kampf, written during the year (1923–24) he spent in prison beginning at age thirty-four, Hitler traced his feelings of revulsion for Jews to his early twenties.
Six years later, when he plunged his country into the largest and most costly conflict the world had known, he exploited Jews fiendishly. He used Jewish labor to build the weapons of war, he starved Jewish families to feed his armies, and he used the fervor of battle to make the murder of Jews a civic duty. So strong was Hitler’s determination to destroy all Jews that, even when German troops were beginning to lose ground on the battlefields of Europe and Russia, trains that were desperately needed to carry supplies and reinforcements were instead assigned to transport Jews to their deaths.
