The Memory of Treblinka Foundation


The Memory of Treblinka Foundation

Treblinka is the largest cemetery of Polish Jews. It is one of the largest cemeteries of Polish citizens. Around 900 000 people are estimated to have died here. Today the area is silent. This place demands not only prayer and contemplation, but also a caring remembrance and knowledge.




Ribbon of Remembrance

A Ribbon of Remembrance has been placed in Treblinka – it is accompanied by a monument going from the parking lot. You can also see it further, on the edge of the forest surrounding the camp. About 4000 names and surnames of people who died here were placed on the ribbon. It is less than 0.5% of Treblinka’s victims.
The commemoration was prepared by the Jewish Historical Institute and the Treblinka Remembrance Foundation.
