Pendant with possible ties to Anne Frank found at Nazi death camp

A decades-old pendant with potential ties to Anne Frank has been found on the grounds of a former Nazi death camp.

Haaretz.com reports archaeologists unearthed the triangular piece while digging at a Polish site called Sobibór where victims often undressed before being forced into gas chambers.

According to the Times of Israel, the jewelry "has the inscription Mazel Tov in Hebrew with the date July 3, 1929, on one side and on the other, the Hebrew letter hey — used to symbolize God's name — along with three stars of David."

The team eventually recognized the unique pendant's striking similarity to one Anne Frank, who was also born in Frankfurt, had while she was alive.

Researchers have since determined that it likely belonged to a girl named Karoline Cohn who was born on July 3, 1929.

According to Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center,"...additional research reveals that aside from similarities between the pendants, both Anne Frank and Karoline Cohn were born in Frankfurt, suggesting a possible familial connection between Frank and Cohn. Researchers are currently trying to locate relatives of the two families to further explore this avenue."

Sobibór has been an archaeological site for the past 10 years.
