Treblinka

Treblinka is a small village in the Mazowieckie voivodship (province) of Poland. In 1984 it had 330 inhabitants.

During World War II, Nazis organized the Treblinka extermination camp in the neighbourhood of the village; estimates of the number of people killed there range from 700,000 to 1,400,000.


Treblinka was the name of a Swedish punk rock band. The name was chosen for its shock value, but the band itself never had any connections with Nazis and never backed their ideology.
