This boxcar, which sits on original tracks from the Treblinka death camp, is one of only three in the United States. Moved into its new home in the Holocaust Center last year, it serves as a silent witness to the horrors of the Holocaust. About 100 to 120 prisoners were jammed into 30- by 8-foot freight cars. Many died before the train arrived at its destination.
