NOT for the faint of heart. This is a cinematic story of the 1943 Treblinka Revolt which lead to the death camp's being shut down. Told from several points of view, it really captures the sheer banal horror of the place: the constant stench of rotting flesh, guards raping twelve-year-old girls before they're taken to the pits and shot, hiding dead people's gold teeth in your mouth. Most people couldn't handle this book. It's too real.
