The alleged Vernichtungslager Treblinka II. Wiki says this:
The camp operated between 23 July 1942 and 19 October 1943 as part of Operation Reinhard, the deadliest phase of the Final Solution. During this time, it is estimated that between 700,000 and 900,000 Jews were killed in its gas chambers.
There is detail about the building of the camp- Built... April 1942 – July 1942. The builders were:
Richard Thomalla (death camp)
Erwin Lambert (gas chambers)
Christian Wirth..Schönbronn Company, Leipzig
Schmidt–Münstermann, Warsaw branch
It was known that a Konzentrationslager existed in late 1941 as mentioned by deathcamps.org. The Treblinka labour camp (known as Treblinka I) was established in late 1941. It was located around 2 km south of the extermination camp Treblinka II. Today the large gravel pit of this forced labour camp is still visible. Thousands of Poles (Jews and non-Jews) were forced to dig in the mine.

On that note we will not be misled by those individuals. There is a timeline discrepancy indicated by the following Intelligence report, now found in the CIA reading room
, declassified. This is interesting, being ratified or received on October 1944; it mentions all of the known Konzentrationslager and their purpose.
The discussion here is on Treblinka
. One would assume that there were no exterminations at Treblinka at least until the Extermination Camp or Vernichtungslager was built in Autumn (northern hemisphere) 1942. The report makes a distinction between extermination
: exterminate is to kill all of a population, usually deliberate while annihilate is to reduce to nothing, to destroy, to eradicate.
The intelligence report above mentions specifically that Treblinka was a camp to exterminate Juden in September 1941, specifically camp three
. It states:
80 Km. NE of WARSCHAU
: reported as consisting of 3 camps
- I "punitive camp for forced labour.
- II KL
- IIIExtermination camp for Jews.
No doubt the first camp is the quarry, Treblinka II is a Konzentrationslager only, perhaps a Customs Transit camp, while the extermination camp was somewhere else in the area known as Treblinka III
. Perhaps this was another extermination camp existing in the area before the one recognized as the "official narrative" of an AR camp was built.
This was recorded here as exterminating Juden a year before it was supposed to exist.
