A box of archaeological finds that were shelved for over 50 years in one of the buildings of Polish Academy of Sciences have been brought back to the Auschwitz Museum. They originated from archaeological excavations conducted in 1967 in the area of the gas-chamber and the crematory no. III in Auschwitz concentration camp.
Employees of the Auschwitz Museum discovered a double bottom in a metal mug inside which jewellery was hidden. They were conducting routine preservation works on objects stolen by German Nazis from people arriving at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Death Camp.
