One of the last living survivors of the Nazi concentration camp Sobibor in Poland, Jules Schelvis, has died at the age of 95, the Sobibor Foundation said Monday.
The Dutch national, who died on Sunday, was the author of several books, including an internationally renowned work on the Sobibor camp.
Schelvis, who himself later established the Sobibor Foundation, was deported from the Netherlands in June 1943 to the Nazi concentration camp at the Ukraine border in occupied Poland, where an estimated 170,000 people, mostly Jews, were killed during World War II.
