Belzec, Sobibor, and Treblinka, known as the Operation Reinhard camps, are much less familiar to American audiences than Auschwitz. Yet the SS murdered more than 1.5 million Jews in these camps during World War II. This presentation will offer a detailed history of these three killing centers in 1942–1943 and where they might fit in the larger history of the Holocaust.
This Lunchbox Lecture is free and open to the public to attend in The National WWII Museum’s Karen H. Bechtel and William M. Osborne III Media Auditorium. For those unable to make it to the Museum’s campus, the lecture will also be livestreamed on Facebook, Vimeo, and YouTube, and will be available as a recording after the fact on both platforms.
