Loading the Trains
I got to the train station and stopped between posts . Before me, there was a square crowded full of people waiting for the others to arrive. The scene of loading was shocking. The people were being pushed like cattle to slaughter. They were beaten and pushed by horses. [Original Page 4] They crawled all over each other's heads --losing clothing, shoes, headgear -- and were loaded quickly-– within 7 - 10 minutes.
In other days a train like that was loaded all day by a few hundred people.  The doors of the boxcars were locked by heavy bars and the locomotive pulled them in a known direction, Nach Treblinka .
