The Belzec Staff

The staff serving in the extermination camps Belzec, Sobibor and Treblinka consisted of two groups: 1. German and Austrian SS- and policemen, 2. "Trawnikis": Men of German extraction who lived in Ukrainia and Soviet Russia (Volksdeutsche) and others of Ukrainian or Russian extraction. After the occupation of their home they decided to "work" for the Germans and were trained in the SS training camp Trawniki near Lublin.
