List of British prisoners of war found buried in Auschwitz bunker

A list containing the names of 17 British soldiers has been discovered in a bunker at the Auschwitz concentration camp. It is puzzling researchers because they have no idea why it was there.

The document is a piece of white celluloid with 17 surnames handwritten in pencil in block letters, while a list of numbers sits on the top right hand corner of the same page.

Polish historian Dominik Synowic, who found the document, told the Austrian Times that the list’s origins was a complete mystery.

Synowic said he was looking for something else entirely when he stumbled on the document.
