‘LOOT­ERS DUG UP HOLO­CAUST GRAVES’

The Jewish Chronicle - - WORLD NEWS -

HOLO­CAUST VIC­TIMS’ graves have been dug up by loot­ers at the former site of the So­bi­bor death camp in Poland. So­bi­bor mu­seum staff tak­ing part in an of­fi­cial ar­chae­o­log­i­cal dig found that graves had been dis­turbed by sus­pected trea­sure hun­ters. A mu­seum source told

“We don’t know who did it, but we sus­pect they were look­ing for gold or me­tal. The idea that thieves have been here look­ing for such dis­turb­ing me­men­tos is shock­ing.” Around 250,000 Jews and nonJews were mur­dered there.
