The following citation provides an example of the importance of
accurate research. It is clear from other published reports that
Treblinka had been dismantled prior to the arrival of Soviet
troops. Thus the information below cannot be correct. Nizkor would
like to thank Tom Moran for pointing out this error. For further
information about the dismantling of the camp at Treblinka, we
recommend orgs/israeli/yad-vashem/yvs.camps.04. My thanks to Tom
Moran for pointing out the monumental errors in the following

"When the Russians took over the Treblinka complex and the nearly dead
survivors had recovered sufficiently to communicate, the tales that they
poured out were not limited to the horrors they had endured. These called
for no review. There was no lack of physical evidence on display, the
suffocated bodies in recently arrived cattle cars, the abandoned
instruments of torture and death, the files and records that the Germans
had so carefully maintained. It was the repeated tales of senseless cruelty
that increased the Russian fury; mothers obliged to carry their infants to
their deaths ...; the woman on her way to the gas chamber, goaded to
desperation by a taunting SS man, who threw herself upon him, and was then
tortured by his comrades to emphasize the cost of remonstrance. The
prisoners remembered the little boy who consoled his weeping parents on the
edge of their mass grave with the assurance that the Russians would avenge
them. They did so, wasting no time on due process." (Sachar, 34-35)
