Excavating Sobibor Holocaust Archeology between Heritage, History and Memory

From 2000 to 2020, archaeologists conducted extensive research at the site of the former Nazi death camp Sobibor, marking the most comprehensive excavations at a Holocaust site to date. They traced the exact locations where historical events had taken place and unearthed tens of thousands of artifacts.

The research generated an ‘archaeological momentum,’ bringing a challenging past directly into the present and triggering a multitude of social, political, memory, and heritage processes. In this edited volume, an interdisciplinary group of archaeologists, historians, museologists, and heritage researchers critically examine these developments.

The publication is open access available online.
