Treblinka Model according to survivor Richard Glazar
Welcome! Thank you for visiting my model of the
former extermination camp TREBLINKA. I built the model between 1995
and 1998 in remembrance of nearly one million people who were
killed at this site.
I received useful information in constructing the model from the
following sources: Dr. Burba of Einbeck; Mr. Dreßen of the
Zentrale Stelle Ludwigsburg; Mr. Lozowick of Yad Vashem; Mr. Wysok
of Lublin and Mrs. Goldstein of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum
Washington DC. Thanks to Mr. Vanderwerff from Ontario who helped
revising this text. The model is dedicated to the memory of Richard
Glazar and his wife who, unfortunately, both passed away in 1997.
Mr. Glazar was one of the few people who escaped from this camp. By
personal talks, letters, and telephone calls he was able to answer
many important questions. His contribution allowed me to construct
the model as authentically as possible.
The model (scale 1:400) measures 1.5 x 1 metre. It consists of
three parts: each 0.5 x 1 metre and represents conditions as they
existed in the year 1943.
The model is exhibited since 2003 at the Beth Shalom Holocaust Centre
in England (see the "Links" page).
