The title of my blog post is a quote from this news article: http://www.cherwell.org/2017/03/09/shoah-how-do-you-understand-the-holocaust/

Begin quote

Of an estimated 300 inmates who escaped from Treblinka that day, about 100 survived the massive SS manhunt. Most of the Committee’s members, including Galewski, Bloch, and Kurland, perished during the uprising. Jankiel Wiernik escaped his captors and found shelter with a righteous Pole. The following year, with the assistance of Jewish underground leaders in Warsaw, he secretly published his memoirs of Treblinka and of the bold camp uprising, which were then smuggled to England and the United States. Wiernik died in Israel in 1972.

I wrote the following about Treblinka on my website:

Begin quote from my scrapbookpages.com website:

Many feared that the SS would soon liquidate the camp and its remaining prisoners so that all evidence of their heinous crimes would be destroyed.

To forestall this event, a group of Jewish prisoners, calling themselves the “Organizing Committee,” began planning an uprising and mass escape. Composed mainly of the camp’s prisoner functionaries, the Committee included over time former Polish army officer Dr. Julian Chorazycki, “camp elder” Marceli Galewski, former Czech army officer Zelo Bloch, as well as Zev Kurland, kapo at the camp’s “hospital,” and Jankiel Wiernik, a carpenter who worked in the extermination area.

In its preparations, the Jewish underground suffered some serious setbacks. In April 1943, the camp’s deputy commandant discovered Chorazycki, who was in charge of procuring weapons from the outside, with a large sum of money. In the struggle that ensued, the resistance leader chose to commit suicide by swallowing a vial of poison rather than risk the possibility that under torture he would reveal the identities of his comrades.
On August 2, 1943, the Committee launched their revolt. The prisoners seized weapons from the SS storeroom, attacked the German and Ukrainian guards, and set some of the buildings ablaze. Unconcerned with their own safety, the resistance leaders fought bravely to aid the escape of the inmates. Under gunfire from the watchtowers, many prisoners broke through the camp’s barbed-wire fences.

Of an estimated 300 inmates who escaped from Treblinka that day, about 100 survived the massive SS manhunt. Most of the Committee’s members, including Galewski, Bloch, and Kurland, perished during the uprising. Jankiel Wiernik escaped his captors and found shelter with a righteous Pole. The following year, with the assistance of Jewish underground leaders in Warsaw, he secretly published his memoirs of Treblinka and of the bold camp uprising, which were then smuggled to England and the United States. Wiernik died in Israel in 1972.

  1. It looks like the Cherwell article later removed the Jankiel Weirnik part. Which is odd. Maybe because he’s such an obvious fraud. Or maybe it was misquoted here on furtherglory
