Rabinowicz, Jakub

Jakub Rabinowicz was a Treblinka inmate who managed to escape from the camp probably in early September 1942. Later that month, his testimony was recorded by the Jewish underground movement of the Warsaw Ghetto. The extant fragment of it does not contain any reference to extermination facilities or killing methods, but it does mention a diesel engine used to create electricity for the camp. Other surviving documents from the ghetto make reference to Rabinowicz’s testimony. One of them states that mass murder at Treblinka was carried out with steam, while another claims “gas, steam, electricity” as the murder methods. In other words, either Rabinowicz didn’t know, or those referring to his statements didn’t report it properly. (For more details, see Mattogno 2021e, pp. 121f.)
