My Goodreads.com review of Treblinka

Based on firsthand testimony (written in the 60s), this boor recounts the successful Jewish uprising that destroyed the Treblinka concentration camp. And I thought I knew basically everything about the Holocaust! Steiner puts us inside the world of the organizers of the revolt, telling their story in a way that recalls such oft-tossed around phrases as "triumph of the human spirit." But that's what this story is, and a gripping thriller as well.

Whoa, I never knew that's what happened to Treblinka ... might have to dig up a copy. : )
