"...close to 100,000 Jews from the District of Lublin were deported to
Sobibor. Based on the number of Jews who lived in small townships and
villages in these areas before the war, and considering the thousands
of Jews who were expelled or fled from territories in western Poland,
which was annexed to Germany, and who found refuge in the Lublin area,
the actual number of those who were deported to Sobibor is much
higher. We may assume that the total number of Jews from the District
of Lublin who were exterminated in Sobibor was about 130,000 to

About 15,000 to 25,000 Jews were deported from Lvov and the other
ghettos in the District of Galicia to Sobibor in the period ... after
Belzec was closed."
