The Funnel: Speech to Jews at Treblinka by Kurt Franz

Why try to run? Why take risks? No matter
how far you flee, you return
to Treblinka,

a funnel whose upper edges are the ends of earth. You
are near the bottom. Others are already
falling, falling

will pass you soon. Do not run from your
responsibilities. The earth
will be purged
of Jews,

and Treblinka will become for you a world of joy.
I swear this on my honor
as an SS.
