Archaeologists in Poland have uncovered a mass grave of around 300 prisoners at the site of the former Nazi death camp Gross-Rosen in southwestern Poland.

The Gross-Rosen concentration camp was established in August 1940 and had about 125,000 prisoners, who were mostly Jewish. Overall, some 40,000 people were killed at the camp, which was considered one of the most notorious Nazi death camps. The camp was liberated in February 1945 by the Soviet Union.
