"An extremely valuable research study undertaken to establish the timetable
and number of deported Jews from the General Government and to which death
camp they were sent was carried out by Tatiana Berenstein and published in
Poland in the Biuletyn Zydowskiego Instytutn Historycznego (Bulletin of the
Jewish Historical Institute), Warsaw, No.  3/1952, No.  21/1957, No.
59/1966, No.  61/1967.  Another source is the "Luach Hashoa (Holocaust
Calendar) of Polish Jewry" prepared by Rabbi Israel Schepansky and
published by "Or Hamizrach," New York, 1974.  A most important and more up
to date source is the Pinkas Hakebillot (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities), Poland, Vol.  II, Eastern Galicia, and Vol.  III, Western
Galicia, published by Yad Vashem, Jerusalem, in 1980 and 1984.  The ...
tables of the deportations are based on all the aforementioned primary
sources and research studies."

Passed on September 3, 1965 in the trial of Kurt Franz and nine others 
at the court of Assizes in Dusseldorf (First Treblinka Trial) (AZ-LG
Dusseldorf: II 931638, p. 49 ff.), and the trial of Franz Stangl at 
the court of Assizes at Dusseldorf (Second Treblinka Trial) on 
December 22, 1970 (pp. 111 ff.,AZ-LG Dusseldorf, XI-148/69 S.)

Number of Persons Killed at the Treblinka Extermination Camp:

At least 700,000 persons, predominantly Jews, but also a number of 
Gypsies, were killed at the Treblinka extermination camp.

These findings are based on the expert opinion submitted to the Court
of Assizes by Dr. Helmut Kraunsnick, director of the Institute for
Contemporary History (Institute fur Zeitgeschichte) in Munich. in
formulating his opinion, Dr. Kraunsnick consulted all the German and
foreign archival material accessible to him and customarily studied
in historical research. Among the documents he examined were the

(1) The so-called Stroop report, a report by SS Brigadefuhrer [Brigadier]
    Jurgen Stroop, dealing with the destruction of the Warsaw ghetto.
    This report consists of three parts: namely, an introduction, a
    compilation of daily reports and a collection of photographs.

(2) The record of the trial of the major war criminals before the 
    International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg.

(3) The official transportation documents (train schedules, telegrams,
    and train inventories) relevant to the transports to Treblinka. 

The latter documents, of which only a part were recovered after the war,
were the subject of the trial and were made available to Dr. Krausnick
by the Court of Assizes.

Dr. Krausnick's report includes the following information:

According to the Stroop report a total of approximately 310,000 Jews were
transported in freight trains from the Warsaw ghetto to Treblinka during
the period from July 22, 1942 to October 3, 1942.  Approximately another
19,000 Jews made the same journey during the period from January, 1943 to
the middle of May, 1943.  During the period from August 21, 1942 to August
23, 1943, additional transports of Jews arrived at the Treblinka
extermination camp, likewise by freight train, from other Polish cities,
including Kielce, Miedzyrec, Lukow, Wloszczowa, Sedzizzow, Czestochowa,
Szydlowiec, Lochow, Kozienice, Bialystok, Tomaszow, Grodno and Radom.
Other Jews, who lived in the vicinity of Treblinka, arrived at Treblinka in
horse-drawn wagons and in trucks, as did Gypsies, including some from
countries other than Poland.  In addition, Jews from Germany and from other
European countries, including Austria, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia
and Greece were transported to Treblinka, predominantly is passenger

It has not been possible, of course, to establish the exact number of
people transported to Treblinka in this fashion, because only a part of the
transportation documents, particularly those relevant to the railroad
transports, are available.  Still, assuming that each of the trains
consisted of an average of 60 cars, with each freight car holding an
average total of 100 persons and each passenger car an average total of 50
(i.e., that each freight train might have carried an approximate total of
6,000, and each passenger train an approximate total of 3,000 Jews to
Treblinka) the total number of people transported to Treblinka in freight
trains and passenger trains might be estimated at approximately 271,000.
This total would not include the 329,000 from Warsaw.  Actually, however,
these figures in many instances were much larger than the ones cited above.
Besides, many additional thousands of Jews - and also Gypsies - arrived in
Treblinka in horse-drawn wagons and on trucks.  Accordingly, it must be
assumed that that the total number of Jews from Warsaw, from other parts of
Poland, from Germany and from other European countries, who were taken to
Treblinka, plus the total of at least 1,000 Gypsies who shared the safe
fate, amounted to far more than 700,000, even if one considers that several
thousands of people were subsequently moved from Treblinka to other camps
and that several hundred inmates succeeded in escaping from the camp,
especially during the revolt of August 2, 1943.  In view of the foregoing,
it would be scientifically admissible to estimate the total number of
persons killed in Treblinka at a minimum of 700,000.

The court of Assizes sees no reason to question the opinion of this expert,
who is known in the scholarly world for his studies on the National
Socialist persecution of the Jews.  The expert opinion he has submitted is
detailed, thorough, and therefore convincing.

In the fall of 1969 another expert, Dr.  Scheffler, submitted for the
second Treblinka trial an opinion which was based on more recent research,
estimating the total number of victims at about 900,000.
