Israeli Archaeologist Digs into Nazi Death Camp

Israeli Archaeologist Digs into Nazi Death Camp

Sobibor, in eastern Poland, marks perhaps the most vivid example of the "Final Solution," the Nazi plot to wipe out European Jewry. Now, Israeli archaeologist Yoram Haimi has embarked on a landmark excavation project that is shining new light on the notorious death camp, including pinpointing the location of the gas chambers.

When Israeli archaeologist Yoram Haimi decided to investigate his family's unknown Holocaust history, he turned to the skill he knew best: He began to dig.

After learning that two of his uncles were murdered in the infamous Sobibor death camp, he embarked on a landmark excavation project that is shining new light on the workings of one of the most notorious Nazi killing machines, including pinpointing the location of the gas chambers where hundreds of thousands were killed.

Sobibor, in eastern Poland, marks perhaps the most vivid example of the "Final Solution," the Nazi plot to wipe out European Jewry. Unlike other camps that had at least a facade of being prison or labor camps, Sobibor and the neighboring camps Belzec and Treblinka were designed specifically for exterminating Jews. Victims were transported there in cattle cars and gassed to death almost immediately.

1. Sad Thing

The sad thing is that we have Americans and the President of Iran who will deny the validity of any of this man's work. For those idiot Americans, is there any way to rub their ignorant little noses in the dog mess and smack them with a newspaper?

3. That story is incredibly cool...

though the existence of the death camp is incredibly sad. It's wonderful that they are getting ammunition against the Holocaust deniers.
