You can read a news article about Paula Slier, a RT reporter, who has made a new documentary about 119 of her relatives who died in Nazi concentration camps during World War II. Paula Slier claims that one of her relatives was killed in a gas chamber at Sobibór.

Sobibor was a whistle stop on a branch railroad line

I wrote a previous blog post about the claim that the names of the Jews who were gassed are unknown: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2013/05/10/30000-records-kept-by-the-nazis-but-not-one-name-of-anyone-who-died-in-a-gas-chamber/

MOSCOW, May 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — In “119 Lives Unlived,” RT correspondent Paula Slier looks into her family’s past to discover the exact fate of the 119 members of her family who were exterminated in Nazi concentration camps during World War 2. Seventy years after the end of the war, she conducts a personal investigation into where and how they died.

Paula Slier starts her search in Amsterdam, where a shoebox with postcards and letters that belonged to her second cousin Flip Slier was found during construction work on an old house. In 1943 Flip was murdered in a gas chamber of the Sobibor concentration camp.

Did you catch that, dear readers? Paula Slier has the name of one of her relatives, who was gassed at Sobibór. And you thought that there were no gas chambers at Sobibór.

Two monuments at Sobibor in honor of the Jews who were gassed there

The title of my blog post was “Why were Dutch Jews sent to Sobibór, passing up Auschwitz and Majdanek?”

I wrote another blog post, which you can read at

The title of my blog post was “Jews were reduced to ashes within a half-hour of their arrival at the Sobibór extermination camp ”

Does anyone besides me think that the story of this camp is very strange?

Let’s go to Wikipedia for the true story.

This quote is from Wikipedia:

Begin quote

Jews from Poland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, as well as the Soviet prisoners of war, were transported to Sobibór by rail and suffocated in gas chambers fed by the exhaust of large petrol engines. Up to 200,000 people were murdered at Sobibór,[3] and possibly more. During the postwar trial against the former SS personnel of Sobibór, held in Hagen, Professor Wolfgang Scheffler estimated the total figure of murdered Jews at a minimum of 250,000.[4][5]

All of this will come as a great surprise to Bradley Smith, who has been asking for the name of one person (with proof) who was gassed by the Nazis. I wrote about Bradley Smith and his search for one person who was gassed on this blog post:
