Dutch scientists say they have discovered a mass grave at the site of the Belsen concentration camp. The Nazis killed 70,000 people there between 1941 and 1945.
The site of the mass grave, 16 meters by 4 meters, was indicated by former prisoners’ testimony, and is considered the place where Dutch Resistance activist Jan Verschure is buried, according to Dutch TV news program Nieuwsuur.
The exact location of the grave was found by Verschure’s grandson after he interviewed survivors.
“One of them gave me a map on which he marked where my grandfather was buried,” Verschure told Nieuwsuur.
