  • As Belzec was the first death camp of Operation Reinhard, its manpower and organizational needs were improved as more and more expe-rience was attained. Toward the middle of March 1942, Belzec death camp was ready to absorb the first trans-ports.

  • The lesson learned from the unsuccessful attempts was that plans for escape could not be based on the help of partisans or Ukrainians. The prisoners had to rely on their own ability and strength to get out of the camp.

  • The reception and treatment of the transport from its arrival at Belzec station until the completion of the killing process was developed by Christian Wirth.

  • Those Soviet war prisoners or local Ukrainians from West Ukraine who volunteered for Operation Reinhard were sent to the SS training camp at Trawniki.

  • The gassing process took between fifteen and thirty minutes. During this time the van was driven from the loading site to prepared graves.

    Highly praised in all reviews, and deservedly so, Arad's book is notable both for its intercalation of primary documents into his narrative and for his condemnations of Western Powers, the Poles, and the Armia Krajowa for their indifference to and oftentimes active collusion in operations of Poland's ghettos and death camps. It virtually concludes with a record of the Poles returning to the grounds of Treblinka in November 1945 to dig in the ground at the cremated remains of hundreds of thousands of Jews, madly looking for concealed diamonds and gold.

    A good introduction, then, for scholars (and probably intelligent non-scholars) introducing themselves to Holocaust scholarship.

    This book changed my entire view of the Holocaust. Until I read it, I was only really familiar with Auschwitz-Birkenau, which was both a labor and an extermination camp. While that was horrible enough, I also knew that some folks survived, which made things seem some how bearable. However, these three camps were completely extermination camps. Except for a few people needed to do things like retrieve gold from teeth, everyone who was shipped to these camps was gassed. The brutal mechanization and utter unsurvivability of the system finally penetrated my brain. I can't recommend this book enough to anyone not yet aware of the horror this time.
