I am doing a history project on the Treblinka extermination camp for school, and learnt about the zoo

enter image description here

Investigating further I found that the zoo contained at least four foxes, two peacocks and a roe deer[1]. The following photo is from Kurt Franz's photo album which was displayed in court during his trial

enter image description here

However the following image keeps appearing:

enter image description here

This site claims the photo is of Treblinka and that the image also appeared in Franz's album.

However on a more convincing note, the same site has a similar post with this reply suggesting that the photo is actually from the Buchenwald zoo.

Can anyone find a definite answer of wear that photo is from?

    There was no concentration camp in Treblinka. I think you mean death camp. And note that the website to which you link ("Further Glory") is written by a Holocaust denier and is full of deliberate misinformation. For details on the zoo at Treblinka, I would start with Yitzhak Arad's Belzec, Sobibor, Treblinka: The Operation Reinhard Death Camps, and follow his references. – Shimon bM Apr 9 '17 at 12:16

    @ShimonbM it was a labour camp to begin with but it changed to death camp halfway through the way, Thanks for telling me about the site – Beastly Gerbil Apr 9 '17 at 12:17

    Trablinka II, which is where the zoo was located was built from the start as an extermination camp and never was used as a labour camp. – SIMEL Apr 9 '17 at 12:42
