This is a remarkable book by a remarkable author. Jules Schelvis was himself a survivor of several Nazi camps, including a short stay of a few hours in Sobibor

This is a remarkable book by a remarkable author. Jules Schelvis was himself a survivor of several Nazi camps, including a short stay of a few hours in Sobibor. After his retirement, he made it his mission to write the first detailed and scholarly book about this camp. His motivation was without doubt very personal and very emotional, as his young wife and her family were murdered in Sobibor.

The very names of these Nazi camps evoke unspeakable cruelty. Jules Schelvis is a Holocaust survivor and independent scholar. In 1943, he was deported to Sobibor, where he lost his wife and family. He lives in the Netherlands. Sobibör is less well known, and this book discloses the horrors perpetrated there. Established in German-occupied Poland, the camp at Sobibör began its dreadful killing operation in May 1942. By October 1943, approximately 167,000 people had been murdered there.

Auschwitz. Treblinka. The very names of these Nazi camps evoke unspeakable cruelty. Sobibör is less well known, and this book discloses the horrors perpetrated there.Established in German-occupied Poland, the camp at Sobibör began its dreadful killing operation in May 1942. By October 1943, approximately 167,000 people had been murdered there. Sobibör is not well documented and, were it not for an extraordinary revolt on 14 October 1943, we would know little about it.

Before reading this book, I had no idea that this type of revolt had been carried out during the Holocaust. The book is extremely detailed, to the point of reminding me of a history textbook. Schelvis has clearly done his research; he makes a point of citing his sources. The end of the book includes an impressive list of all known victims and survivors to go through Sobibor. Schelvis gives a complete history of the camp itself, beginning with its construction and ending with the place's status today. Maps are included as well.

This is not an emotional read. Although Schelvis survived a stint in the camp himself, he barely mentions that experience. Rather, he seems determined to present the facts, the who, what, where, and when of Sobibor. Considering the atrocities carried out there, reading an account of this death camp might be impossible for many were the account not so unemotional. It is not a book I will read a second time, but I am very glad I read it once. Even without emotional drama on the writer's part, the story of these prisoners' refusal to die quietly is both inspiring and tragic. I had sometimes wondered why concentration camp prisoners never (as far as I knew) rebelled. Now I know.

My family lost 3 relatives at Sobibor - German Jews who had fled to Amsterdam in the late 1930s only to be rounded up in 1943 and sent to this extermination camp, a mother and father and their 13-year old daughter. Two sons, ages 18 and 20, were sent to Auschwitz and met similar deaths. This book meticulously roots out a wide range of evidence, leaving little doubt for would be Holocaust deniers and giving people like myself a deeper understanding of what my great aunt and uncle and my mother's first cousins experienced.
