Jewish tombstone fragments discovered in Polish town near Treblinka. 21 May 2013 - "Pieces may be embedded in a concrete wall built at the Jewish cemetery in Sokolow. Fragments from dozens of Jewish tombstones were discovered during renovations in a Polish town near the former Nazi death camp Treblinka. The fragments were found last week in the eastern town of Sokolow Podlaski as work began on a terrace leading to the shops located at a marketplace there. The two Jewish cemeteries in the town were devastated during World War II. In the 1930s, some 60 percent of Sokolow's 10,000 inhabitants were Jewish. Most of the Jews perished in September 1942 at Treblinka." Read the original article here.
