‘We saw ourselves already outside the gates of the inferno’. Treblinka uprising through the eyes of Jankiel Wiernik
Carpenter Jankiel Wiernik took part in the uprising in the Treblinka extermination camp on August 2, 1943. He was one of the few prisoners who managed to survive. After reaching Warsaw, he wrote down his experiences, which in 1944 were published by the Polish resistance as the brochure ‘A Year in Treblinka’.
