Auschwitz Ring

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?

I’m so happy that this has been found, and so heartbroken that someone needed to hide it.
