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.
