Auschwitz. Treblinka. The very names of these Nazi camps evoke unspeakable cruelty. Sobibör is less well known, and this book discloses the horrors perpetrated there.Established in German-occupied Poland, the camp at Sobibör began its dreadful killing operation in May 1942. By October 1943, approximately 167,000 people had been murdered there. Sobibör is not well documented and, were it not for an extraordinary revolt on 14 October 1943, we would know little about it. On that day, prisoners staged a remarkable uprising in which 300 men and women escaped. The author identifies only forty-seven who survived the war.Sent in June 1943 to Sobibör, where his wife and family were murdered, Jules Schelvis has written the first book-length, fully documented account of the camp. He details the creation of the killing centre, its personnel, the use of railways, selections, forced labour, gas chambers, escape attempts and the historic uprising.In documenting this part of Holocaust history, this compelling and well-researched account advances our knowledge and understanding of the Nazi attempt to annihilate the European Jews.Published in association with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

About the Author:

Jules Schelvis is a Holocaust survivor and independent scholar. In 1943, he was deported to Sobibor, where he lost his wife and family. He lives in the Netherlands. Bob Moore is Reader in History at the University of Sheffield.

Review:

This is a remarkable book by a remarkable author. Jules Schelvis was himself a survivor of several Nazi camps, including a short stay of a few hours in Sobibor. After his retirement, he made it his mission to write the first detailed and scholarly book about this camp. His motivation was without doubt very personal and very emotional, as his young wife and her family were murdered in Sobibor. In spite of that (or maybe because of it) his research was scrupulously undertaken and his finished text is marked out by its precision and scholarly distance. This book is both an excellent historical study and also a monument to the events it examines.'Professor Hans Blom, University of Amsterdam, and Director, Netherlands Institute for War Documentation'Every historian is motivated by the urge to leave not one stone unturned. This is especially true for Jules Schelvis, who, after many years of archival research, managed to uncover the sinister facts of the extermination camp of Sobibor, du
