Archaeologists Unearth One Of Hitler’s Darkest Secrets
A team of archaeologists unearthed shocking remains at a former death camp in Sobibor, Poland.
The site was recently excavated to dig deeper into the horrors of what occurred there during the course of the Second World War.
Occupied Poland was home to some of the most despicable concentration camps, which were set up to quickly exterminate the Jewish people, places such as Auschwitz and Treblinka.
But Sobibor was just as hellish.
The camp was part of Operation Reinhard, which eventually saw the deaths of two million innocent people.
In a desperate attempt to cover their tracks as opposing forces began to destroy the Nazis, members burned the camps to the ground and filled in all the graves with concrete.
However, a team of Polish and Israeli archaeologists paid visit to the Sobibor site to uncover the crimes made against their people, reports Reuters.
Among the objects dug up were locks and keys used to keep prisoners in their cells and a ring which had inscribed on it:
Behold, you are consecrated onto me.
In other horrific areas of the excavation, bodies of the dead were found. One showing a bullet hole where a man had been executed.
By the end of the war, just 60 people had made it out of the camp alive.
Remains of an advanced German submarine, rumoured to be transporting Adolf Hitler to South America during the last days of World War II, were discovered in April this year.
Found off the coast of Denmark by researchers at the Sea War Museum Jutland, the Type XXI U-3523 submarine was an advanced German submarine, which was believed to be transporting Hitler out of Europe towards South America.
However, before it could reach its destination, a British aircraft – thought to be a B24 Liberator – sunk it. After the war ended salvagers were unable to locate the wreckage, with some believing it had escaped and reached its intended destination.
However, officials at Denmark’s Sea War Museum believe they’ve located Hitler’s Type XXI submarine just 10 nautical miles off the coast of its northernmost town, Skagen.
The location is further supported by British intelligence, who say the B24 attacked it nine miles away from where it was found, New York Post reported.
The German U-boat is said to have been attacked on May 6, 1945, the day allied forces liberated Denmark from Nazi occupation. It was believed all 58 crew members of the U-3523 died.
Rumours at the time speculated the U-boat submarine was transporting Nazi gold as well as the top brass of Hitler’s cabinet, including the man himself.
However, those who discovered the wreckage claim there was no evidence of loot, Nazi paraphernalia or leaders on board.
According to ‘declassified CIA documents’ Hitler escaped (or at least made an attempt) to South America in the last days of the war.
Since his body was never discovered, an air of speculation has been maintained as to whether he made it out or not.
The widely accepted view is the fascist leader killed himself in the lead up to Germany’s surrender and those loyal to him burnt his body along with his longtime partner (and wife for about 40 minutes), Eva Braun.
