In the first part of Treblinka, the official account of the camp is subjected to a thorough critique of its historical genesis, inner logic, and technical feasibility. Mattogno and Graf’s analysis reveals that the historical picture prescribed by penal law in many European countries is nothing more than an unbroken chain of absurdities.
In the second part of Treblinka: Extermination Camp or Transit Camp? the authors attempt to determine the real function of the Treblinka camp with the help of witness statements, documents, and forensic findings. Through their analysis, they conclude that Treblinka was a transit camp, through which Jews from Warsaw and other areas were led on their way either to occupied Soviet territories in the east or to the Majdanek camp and other labor camps in the area south of Treblinka.
Even longtime revisionism buffs will find a lot that is new in this book, while Graf’s animated style guarantees a pleasant reading experience. The original testimony of witnesses enlivens the reader, as does the skill with which the authors expose the absurdities of Holocaust historiography.
