"Touching the Holocaust" is how Israeli archaeologist Yoram Haimi describes the excavation work he has conducted at the site of the Sobibor death camp in Poland, which was destroyed by the Nazis in 1943 following a prisoner uprising. Among the artifacts uncovered during a decade of work were identity tags belonging to four children from Amsterdam, ranging in age from 5 to 11 years old, who were deported to the camp and murdered there.  The metal pendants bear their names, date of birth and the name of their home town: Lea Judith De La Penha, Deddie Zak, Annie Kapper and David Juda Van der Velde. The excavation, begun prior to construction of a new visitors' center at the camp, was conducted by an archaeological team composed of Haimi, from the Israel Antiquities Authority and two colleagues from Poland and the Netherlands with assistance from local residents. KAN reporter Naomi Segal spoke with Haimi, a doctoral candidate at Tel Aviv University, about the discovery, and the role of archaeological work in Holocaust research.
