"It was a hell, an absolute hell.

A normal person can not imagine how anyone could survive it.

Murderers, born murderers without a trace of conscience would kill any, even the smallest being".

Wrote Kalman Taigman, one of the few prisoners who survived the Treblinka camp, years later.

History of Teblinka

Treblinka is a small village located on the Bug river and is around 110 km from Warsaw. It takes around 1,5 hours by car to get there.

During the Second World War, it was chosen by the Nazis to be an extermination camp. It was first established in 1942 within the framework of Operation Reinhard and it existed until 1943.

Over 850,000 people were murdered in Treblinka. This make Treblinka the second place (after Auschwitz II, Birkenau) in the number of people murdered by the Nazi's.

Nazi Germans wanted to hide the traces of their crimes, so the camps buildings were destroyed and the area was ploughed up and planted with lupine.

In Treblinka everything is symbolic. This is a thought-provoking place where humanity reached one of its lowest points in history.

A lot of Jewish was departed from Warsaw Ghetto to Treblinka during the Second World War. That was one of the main reason's for the Ghetto Uprirising.

Treblinka with Train from Warsaw

Trains to Małkinia (Treblinka) depart to either Białystok (and beyond) or Warsaw (and beyond).

There are two main destinations in Warsaw for these trains: Warszawa Wileńska (Koleje Mazowieckie - green / yellow/ black / white trains), and Warszawa Centralna (Intercity trains, grey-blue).

Take the latter, as it is generally faster. Timetable: www.intercity.pl/en (Intercity trains only), or (all possible trains) rozklad-pkp.pl

From the Małkinia station to the museum it's less than 10 km one way, so I don't think you'll pay more than 100-200 PLN. But I also don't think you'll find an English-speaking driver easily.

Basically this option will possibly cost more and it will take you much more time. See More on TripAdvisor!
