For seventy years a wooded site an hour outside Warsaw has kept hidden one of the most appalling secrets of World War 2; the true nature, scale and operation of Treblinka, one of Hitler’s most lethal extermination camps. Bulldozed in 1943 by the Nazis in an attempt to destroy all evidence of what had happened the site was planted with trees.
This film follows the work of British forensic archaeologist Dr Caroline Sturdy Colls investigating this 20th century cover- up, as she pieces together the first definitive description of Treblinka 2. Even today the location of the gas chambers, where over 870,000 Jews and Gypsies were murdered, is still not known for certain. The location of key buildings, some burial pits and even the size of the camp are all still in dispute.
