Abstract:

A history of the Bełżec death camp, based largely on testimonies of former perpetrators, residents of the village of Bełżec, Poles who were engaged there in construction work and transportation, and a few Jewish and Gypsy survivors. The first Nazi camps in this area were labor camps established in 1940 for the construction of a fortification line along the new German-Soviet border. Construction of the death camp began in late 1941. Discusses the structure and functioning of the camp, its staff, the Jewish work brigades, the transports to Bełżec, and the liquidation of the camp in 1943. Presents lists and short biographies of Jewish inmates, both those who survived and those who perished during the war; victims from Germany and other countries who perished there; and perpetrators, both Germans and Trawniki men, mostly Ukrainian. Pp. 207-260 contain photographs and documents.
