Mug From Auschwitz Concentration Camp Reveals 70-Year-Old Secrets

Mug From Auschwitz Concentration Camp Reveals 70-Year-Old Secrets

It's been over 70 years since the horrific events took place inside the Nazi concentration camps in Auschwitz.

Back then, when millions of Jews were murdered in a mass genocide, just about everything they owned was taken, lost or destroyed.

Recently, staff at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum examined a mug which was found in a concentration camp, and discovered things that have been hidden away all these years.

The mug had a false bottom which was covering up a gold ring and a necklace wrapped in canvas.

The findings were revealed today after the exhibit that the mug was in was maintained.

Hanna Kubik, who works at the museum, said: "When I picked up this mug, it turned out that there were hidden objects inside. With time, the fake bottom had detached from the cup, so it was clearly visible that inside there was a bundle and you could see a fragment of the chain and a ring."

Owners of artefacts like this often remain anonymous, due to the fact that they are pretty much untraceable because of the horrific nature of the genocide.
