SS guard Franz Suchamel attested to the Nazi murder machine which attempted genocide to annihilate the Jewish people.
He described the brutal transportation process which killed most of those brought into Treblinka. During the interview, which Suchomel did not know was being filmed, the SS soldier revealed in great detail the means necessary for killing thousands and the huge efforts that went into disposing of the bodies.
At one point Suchomel revealed that 12,000-15,000 Jews would be murdered per day when Treblinka was working at full capacity. Towards the end of the camp’s existence, Commandant Franz Wirth decided that rather than gassing or shooting the remaining prisoners, they should be starved to death.
