A British forensic archaeologist has unearthed fresh evidence to prove the existence of mass graves at the Nazi death camp Treblinka using “ground-penetrating radar,” according to the UK’s Daily Mail.

Forensic archaeologist Caroline Sturdy Colls says that her findings will help disprove the history books which “state that Treblinka was destroyed by the Nazis but the survey has demonstrated that simply isn’t the case.”

Her work at the site, where the Nazis killed some 800,000 people and then tried to destroy all traces of  the industrial-scale killing, will be broadcast in a  forthcoming documentary “The Hidden Graves Of The Holocaust.”

“I’ve identified a number of buried pits using geophysical techniques. These are considerable in size, and very deep, one in particular is 26 by 17 metres.”

Sturdy Colls says that the pits contain the burnt remains of thousands of bodies.

The forensic archaeologist, who has now presented her findings to the authorities responsible for the memorial at Treblinka, added: “I really hope this is the first stage in a long-term program to seek out those hidden graves of the Holocaust.”
