Testimony of Treblinka's second commandant, Stangl:

	"Michel [the sergeant-major of the camp] told me later that
	Wirth suddenly appeared, looked around on the gas chambers
	on which they were still working, and said: 'right, we'll
	try it out right now with those twenty-five working Jews.
	Get them up here'. They marched our twenty-five Jews up
	there and just pushed them in and gassed them. Michel said
	Wirth behaved like a lunatic, hitting at his own staff with
	his whip to drive them on..."

(Quoted in "BELZEC, SOBIBOR, TREBLINKA - the Operation Reinhard 
Death Camps", Indiana University Press - Yitzhak Arad, 1987, p. 184).
