Sachar's wrong.  When the Russians overran the area where Treblinka was,
there were no survivors present because that plot of ground had been
razed.  I don't know what his sources were, but he should have researched
more carefully before taking a whopper like that into print.

This file was marked with a disclaimer almost a month ago which reads:

   The following citation provides an example of the importance of
   accurate research. It is clear from other published reports that
   Treblinka had been dismantled prior to the arrival of Soviet
   troops. Thus the information below cannot be correct. Nizkor would
   like to thank Tom Moran for pointing out this error. For further
   information about the dismantling of the camp at Treblinka, we
   recommend orgs/israeli/yad-vashem/yvs.camps.04. My thanks to Tom
   Moran for pointing out the monumental errors in the following
                                                   knm. 1996/12/08

How strange that Mr. Moran does not mention this or other contextual
information.  It seems he doesn't want the reader to know the context,
preferring that he or she remain confused.

And how ironic that just four days ago, on December 30th, Ms. Rimland
wrote in her daily Zundelgram:

   This is the context of the Nizkorites, but their agenda is slightly
   different. [...] these people are committed to two things only: (1)
   making Holo Survivors feel good by claiming the undeniable truth of
   every particle of rumor ever uttered in WW2 [...]
