An astonishing story of human perseverance and courage in Auschwitz during the dark days of the Holocaust was restored as a testament to the crimes committed by the Nazi regime.

In 1944, Marcel Nadjari, a Greek Jew who was forced to remove bodies from the Auschwitz gas chambers, buried a letter in a forest near the camp. The text was incredibly rediscovered in 1980, but it was virtually unreadable after years of exposure to the elements.

Using a new imaging technique, scientists reconstructed the letter in 2017; it provides harrowing details of the Holocaust — and what it was like to work as a forced laborer in a Nazi extermination camp.
