The Nazis were responsible for some of human history’s worst crimes during the Second World War.
Chief among them was their attempted extermination of the Jewish people, along with many other minorities and marginalized groups.
Thankfully, Hitler’s reign did not last forever, but it ended almost as brutally as it began. As defeat loomed, the Nazis attempted to cover up the evidence of their actions by killing the witnesses and burning their extermination facilities to the ground.
The Nazis committed a host of atrocities during the Second World War, but chief among them was their attempted extermination of the Jewish people, along with many other minorities and marginalized groups.
During the Second World War, the Nazis with the devil as their leader (we all know who he is) committed severe damage to humanity. One of the biggest was the extermination camps of the Jewish people, along with few minorities.
The camp was part of Operation Reinhard, which eventually saw the deaths of two million innocent people.
Recently, though, a skilled team of Polish and Israeli archaeologists took a visit to the Sobibor site. Their mission was to uncover these inhumane crimes and learn more about the history of the Holocaust.
The archaeologists also found decaying bodies and a frightening number of them at that. These researchers were professionals, but even they must have been disturbed by everything they saw.
Fewer than 60 prisoners made it out of the camp alive by the war’s end. The rest were put in mass graves like this one. While these discoveries didn’t surprise the researchers, they affected them nonetheless.
According to ‘declassified CIA documents’ Hitler escaped (or at least made an attempt) to South America in the last days of the war.
Since his body was never discovered, an air of speculation has been maintained as to whether he made it out or not.
A large portion of the camp was destroyed over the years, but several of the most horrifying monuments remained remarkably intact. Here is the base of a brick wall to one of the infamous gas chambers.
The emptiness of these research sites seems to reinforce the devastation that was wrought at this facility. It’s as if the barren remains echo the death and destruction that was once so commonplace there.
We may never know how anyone could ever carry out such horrific crimes, but at least the victims of this terrible place have finally been found and given the respectful burial they deserve. May nothing like this ever happen again!
