Body

Present, past and future merge in the coaches of a train that crosses Eastern Europe in the 21st century, through Poland, Russia, Ukraine. The slogan of the postwar “Never Again” now sounds like a fairy tale. Everything is happening now. Everywhere. Treblinka is a film essay based on the memoirs by Chil Rajchman (Treblinka: A Survivor’s Memory), a Polish Jew who was arrested with his younger sister in 1942 and sent to Treblinka, a death camp where more than 750,000 were murdered before it was abandoned by German soldiers.
