Traces of Sobibor Archaeology of a Death Camp

No one was supposed to find Sobibor ever again. In 1943, when the Nazis shut down the death camp, they destroyed the gas chambers. To cover up pits where they buried their victims’ ashes, they planted trees.

Between 2000 and 2017, archaeologists conducted several research campaigns on the site of the former death camp. Commissioned by the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport (VWS), NIOD brought together an interdisciplinary group of scientists to compile a scientific volume and a public book. In it, the archaeological findings are highlighted from multiple perspectives. Researcher Erik Schumacher wrote this public book.
