Sobibor Tour

From € 68,00

Death Camp in Sobibor - was founded among forests and between small villages, which helped to keep genocide secret.

Although today the historians calculate the number of murdered Jews at 250,000, according to a German report from 1942, in the Sobibór camp, only 101,370 Jews were murdered in one year alone.

Jews from Western Europe came on passenger trains.

They were also allowed to supply with water at intermediate stations. Foreigner Jews were completely unaware of the ultimate purpose of their journey.

In Sobibór, the SS-Man, dressed in a white apron, greeted them, apologizing for discomforts during the trip, and inviting them to take a bath. After the shower, the Jews would be given back their clothes and luggage and continue their trip further east.

The SS-Man could be convincing enough that people often clapped, sang, and danced with joy.

 

There were 6 gas chambers in the Sobibór camp. Each with dimensions of 4 x 4 meters and a height of 2.2 meters. At one time, Germans could murder up to 1,300 people.

The first, standing on the right side of the photo, is Leon Feldhendler. The son of a rabbi. A miller. Founder of the underground organization in Sobibór. As the first one began to prepare the rebellion in the camp. After the war, he lived in Lublin, a town located nearby the camp. He was accidentally shot in 1945 together with an NKVD officer. 

In 2018, he was posthumously awarded a medal by the President of Poland. 

 

Alexandr Sasha Pieczerski in the Russian soldier's uniform sits in the middle.

Son of a lawyer. Before the war, the manager of the Cultural Center. During the war, he was promoted to the rank of officer for taking an injured commander out from the encirclement. In Sobibór, he developed and implemented a plan of the escape of all prisoners. After an armed rebellion, he broke east and fought in a partisan unit. Arrested by the Red Army as a traitor to the homeland, he was sent to the penal battalion, where he was promoted to captain by bravery. 

Sasza Pieczerski was a forgotten hero until the end of his life. During his life, he was not allowed to leave even for the premiere of the film "Escape from Sobibor". 

After death, he received orders from the Presidents of Poland and Russia.
