Treblinka shatters our pessimism about human dignity . . . a book that restores our faith in the human spirit.”—Los Angeles Times

Treblinka is a tale, not of defeat, but of triumph; not of extermination, but of vindication and transcendence . . . an answer to the Sabras’ unbearable, ferocious, and unforgiving question to their elders: how could it have happened? How could the Jews of Europe have gone to their slaughter like six million lambs?”—New York Book Review
