The Polish National Council has allocated 15,000,000 zlotys to the Warsaw District for the erection of a memorial on the site of the Treb-linka death camp, according to a report in the Warsaw Folkstimme, a Yiddish newspaper.

Numerous documents relating to Nazi crimes perpetrated at Treblinka, will be collected and housed in a museum to be built for the purpose, the report stated. It is also planned to renovate and maintain the mass graves in the area and repave the road leading to the camp site.
