Archaeologists Unearth One Of Hitler’s Darkest Secrets
A team of archaeologists have unearthed some 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 of the concentration camps, which were set up to quickly exterminate the Jewish people, like Auschwitz and Treblinka.
But Sobibor was just as hellish.
The camp was part of Opereation Reinhard, which eventually saw the deaths of 2 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.
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 more awful parts, bodies of the dead were found. One showing a bullet hole where a man had been executed.
Only 60 people made it out of the camp by the end of the war.
