Here’s something amazing.

Per an article from NPR,  Nazis collected more than 12,000 kitchenware items from prisoners sent to Auschwitz. As part of routine work at the Auschwitz museum, a mug with a false bottom was recently discovered. Underneath the false bottom was a jeweled ring and gold necklace. They are simple things but imagine the emotions of whoever put them there. Love? Children? A future? Hard work and the reward of grandchildren scampering through the kitchen?
