It is also the name of the village outside which the camp was built, which is now part of Lublin Voivodship in Poland.<br />

The Jews, including Jewish Soviet POWs, and possibly Gypsies were transported to Sobibór by rail, and suffocated in gas chambers that were fed with the exhaust of a petrol engine. At least 250,000 people were killed in Sobibór. A memorial and museum are at the site today.<br />
