Ever wondered why Nazis are the perfect enemies in video games and movies? Well, that's because they committed horrible and unspeakable crimes. World war II was worth fighting if you consider the scope of Holocaust.
Only a few survivors of the Holocaust are left to tell their story consisting of the unspeakable atrocities of Nazis. The Nazis knew what they were doing and they covered it up well. But Nazi's darkest secrets are no longer hidden, thanks to the team of archeologists.
Nazis sent Jews, gypsies, political prisoners, homosexuals, and others to their deaths in camps between 1941 and 1945.
It was operational in the 19 months, about 250,000 people were brought in trains and killed in the gas chambers in the camp.
If it is not for the few brave prisoners, the camp's death toll must have been much higher.
The gas chambers were buried in concrete, the camp was plowed under and crops were planted to cover everything up. Thanks to the efforts of the determined Team of archeologists led by the descendant of two of Sobibor's victims, the Nazi camps didn't stay hidden forever.
He lost two of his uncles to Sobibor.
A wedding found near the gas chambers. It bears the inscription "Behold, you are consecrated unto me."
Only a few survivors are left to tell their story because the Holocaust happened a long time ago, so digs like one at the Sobibor are critical to understand the Holocaust.
