F587 stopped at Labour camps some 25 of them before arriving at Treblinka I and II; these camps were working until 44. It is likely that the plundering occurred at these camps and the goods transferred on like you said. There would also be some inmates for TI and II, but maybe a hundred. In fairness to Hillberg the existence of these camps is recently known. The train did not stop at any ghetto which is important. The starting point of the journey, "Sędziszów" was also a labour camp still in operation 1944; in fact it was three camps:
- Opened 17 August 1944, for men. Industrial work.
- Opened 1940, closed late 1942. Women
- Opened late 1940, closed early 1943. Men, "transferred" to the Skarzysko forced labor camp for Jews Railway construction, road construction, loading of wood
No mention of Jews being sent to Treblinka even though a transport (for jews)to Treblinka started from there. Fahrplananordnung Nr 587
October 1944 (last mentioned): The male prisoners were "evacuated" in June/August 1944 to the forced labor camp for Jews in Czestochowa and to the Buchenwald concentration camp. The female prisoners were "evacuated" in August 1944 to the Leipzig subcamp of the Buchenwald concentration camp./ The camp was "evacuated" in July 1944: 4,000 Jews were deported to the Hasag headquarters in Leipzig and about 3,000 to the Hasag works in Czestochowa
In 1942 several transports with prisoners arrived at the camp, including about 2,000 Jews from Kielce and about 500 from Checiny, in March and November from Plaszów and then about 1,900 from Majdanek, in early March 1944 about 1,600 from the Lodz ghetto. Also in March, a transport from Plaszów with around 2,000 prisoners arrived at the camp.
Prisoners At times there were 8,000 prisoners in the camp. [LIT]
