Archaeologists unearth jewelry likely removed from Nazi gas chamber victims

Arhelolozi su otkrili nakit koji je vjerojatno oduzet od žrtava gasnih komora

Archaeologists working at the former Nazi extermination camp Sobibór, have uncovered personal items which they believe were removed by Holocaust victims before they were sent to the gas chambers, the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum announced Sunday.The items were found in the location which is believed to be where victims were forced to undress and have their heads shaved before being sent to their death.

Arheolozi, koji su radili u nekadašnjem nacističkom logoru smrti Sobiboru,  su pronašli osobne predmete za koje vjeruju da su  oduzete od žrtava Holokausta prije nego su poslani u gasnu komoru. Te stvari su pronađene na mjestu,  za koje vjeruju,  gdje su žrtve bile prisiljene da se skinu i gdje im se ošišala glava prije nego su poslani u smrt. To su otjrili poljski arheolog  Wojciech Mazurek, Israel Antiquities Authority archaeologist Yoram Haimi i nizozemski suradnik   Ivar Schute.
