Archeologists in Poland uncovered a hidden Nazi gas chamber from World War II.
The chamber was part of the Sobibor concentration camp - which was closed down after an uprising by people being detained there in 1943.
It was located in a small village of eastern Poland because of its general isolation and proximity to a railroad.
German forces tried to hide all traces of the camp after...covering it with an asphalt road. At least 250,000 Jews were killed in the gas chambers. Only 48 prisoners survived the war.
But with this new discovery, those estimations may become more precise. Archeologists say now that they know how big the gas chambers were, they'll be able to determine just how many people died there.
