As the Holocaust was coming to an end, Nazi soldiers were instructed to destroy as much evidence as they could of the extermination camps they had run. Over a quarter million Jews were killed in these camps. Nazi leaders wanted to cover their tracks as much as possible, and so many of the extermination camps were totally destroyed. The gas chambers were filled with sand and roads were built over the camps.
Recently, researchers got a tip that a hidden extermination camp lay beneath a road in Germany. One researcher, Yoram Haimi, a Jewish Archeologist in Germany, felt compelled to pursue the project. Two of his Uncles were killed in the Holocaust, so Yoram wanted to expose the truth.
“Finally, we have reached our goal — the discovery of the gas chambers,” archaeologist Yoram Haimi said. “We were amazed at the size of the building and the well-preserved condition of the chamber walls.” Another of the researchers, Wojciech Mazurek, said: “The extermination of people took place there; murder by smoke from an engine that killed everyone within 15 minutes in these gas chambers, in torment, shouting. The Nazis even bred geese in order to drown out these shouts so that prisoners could not have heard these shouts, these torments.”
