Nearly a million Jews were consumed by the ovens of Treblinka before August 2, 1943. On that day 600 prisoners armed with stolen guns and grenades attacked the Nazi guards, burned the camp, and fled into the nearby Polish forests. Of these, forty survived to bear witness to man's courage in the face of the greatest evil human history has produced. " Treblinka shatters our pessimism about human dignity . . . a book that restores our faith in the human spirit."-- Los Angeles Times " Treblinka is a tale, not of defeat, but of triumph; not of extermination, but of vindication and transcendence . . . an answer to the Sabras' unbearable, ferocious, and unforgiving question to their elders: how could it have happened? How could the Jews of Europe have gone to their slaughter like six million lambs?"-- New York Book Review
