Treblinka Concentration Camp was build in April- July 1942. It was part of the Final Solution inspired by Himmler, one of the most prominent aides of Adolf Hitler. Extermination of everyone who didn't fit racial, religious or ideological dogmas of the Third Reich was the main purpose of its establishment. During its operational history between 22 July 1942 and 19 October 1943 about 800,000 to 1,200,000 were murdered under supervision of SS- Totenkopfverbande (Death Skull Squad).
