Buried Gas Chamber Found In Poland
[su_right_ad]Archeologist have discovered a gas chamber beneath a Nazi concentration camp in Poland.
Nazi forces tried to erase all traces of the camp’s existence. An asphalt road was laid over the top of the site after SS leader Heinrich Himmler ordered its destruction.
The orders came following an uprising against the camp’s staffers on October 14, 1943. Some 12 SS officers were killed in the plot, which involved prisoners telling camp guards they had salvaged well-made or expensive items in order to lure them to a place where they could be slaughtered.
In the subsequent chaos, some 300 of the 600 Jewish inmates broke free. However, many were shot while attempting to escape. By the end of WWII, there were approximately 50 survivors.
The archaeologists explored the site beneath the road and found rows of bricks, four pieces deep. They have determined that this is where the walls of the gas chambers once stood. [su_csky_ad]
