After an uprising at the Nazi death camp with Sobibor, Poland in 1943, German troops attempted to destroy any evidence that it ever existed – despite the fact that an estimated quarter of a million Jews were executed there during the Holocaust.

The gas chambers were filled with sand and a road built right on top, hiding the remains for centuries.

Archaeologists recently got a tip about the location and decided to do some digging underneath the road. After weeks of digging, finally the camp itself was located by a man with a very personal connection to the issue at hand.

“Finally, we have reached our goal — the discovery of the gas chambers,” archaeologist Yoram Haimi said. “We were amazed at the size of the building and the well-preserved condition of the chamber walls.”

According to AmericaNews, Haimi had two uncles killed at this exact death camp – something that helped to ignite his passion for this particular dig. A number of significant personal items were found around the camp, including a wedding band that reads, “Behold, you are consecrated onto me” in Hebrew.

“The extermination of people took place there; murder by smoke from an engine that killed everyone within 15 minutes in these gas chambers, in torment, shouting,” said fellow archaeologist Wojciech Mazurek. “The Nazis even bred geese in order to drown out these shouts so that prisoners could not have heard these shouts, these torments.”


According to reports, only 50 prisoners made it out of this prison alive by the end of the war – just another tragic part of the most abominable time in human history. Share this story and others like it so we never forget our painful past, or else we will be doomed to repeat it.
