1- the evidence to prove the number killed at TII primarily comes from documentation such as Hofle's telegram, Korherr, the Gazenmuller Letter, the Stroop Report and ghetto records. It is supported by the less numerically reliable witness testimony of those at the camp and Zabecki, the Treblinka station master. It is then supported again by the lack of Jewish people returning back to their homes in the towns and cities which were cleared by the Nazis and their Jewish population sent to TII. That evidence and proof is then verified by the lack of any evidence at all for anything other than limited arrivals at other camps of Jews from TII who were selected to work.
2 - the evidence as to why they were killed comes from Nazi anti-Semitic propaganda, the Nuremberg Laws, the Lebensraum policy and Nazi plans to liquidate Jews by Special Treatment and other evidence which shows mass killing was an accepted part of the ethnic cleansing Nazi occupied Europe of Jewish people. Documents such as Wannsee and Goebbels diary prove the Nazis wanted Jews to work and those who were not needed or could not work were expected to die. Killing those who could not provide for the State was also part of the T4 action.
3 - the cause of death, by gassing at various camps is primarily from witnesses who say that is how it was done. It is supported by, for example the lack of bullets at TII and the skulls which were recovered had no bullet wounds. It is further supported by corroboration from other camps that was the method used.
4 - The presence of cremated remains and no mass graves full of corpses at the AR camps corroborates the witness claims that the bodies were exhumed from mass graves, cremated and their cremains were buried there. The cremated remains in themselves and on their own do not show what the cause of death was, who those people were and where they came from.
5- The work by Kola at Belzec which has established rough dimensions of areas of disturbed ground of c21,000m3 gives an approximate idea of the size and location of the original mass graves which were dug to bury corpses, before cremation of remains became the means of disposal.
6 - The cremation of remains is part of the evidence that the Nazis tried to cover up their crime by making body counts, the precise cause of death and identification of individual victims impossible.
