A pendant 'identical' to one belonging to Anne Frank has been found

A pendant almost identical to one worn by Anne Frank has been discovered by researchers excavating a Nazi death camp in Poland, raising the possibility that the young girl who wore it was related to the famous diarist.

Researchers traced the pendant back to Karoline Cohn, a young Jewish girl, who was killed at the death camp.

Both Anne Frank and Karoline Cohn were born in Frankfurt, and researchers are investigating a possible familial connection.

Researchers are now trying to discover from any remaining relatives whether the two girls could have been related.

The pendant has the words "Mazal Tov" written in Hebrew on one side, along with Cohn's date of birth. On the reverse side, it features the Hebrew letter hei, used to symbolize God's name, as well as three Stars of David.

Yad Vashem and the Israel Antiquities Authority are now searching for living relatives who might have more information about Karoline Cohn; the team already has some leads in NY and Jerusalem, Haimi said.

This part of the camp was named "Pathway to Heaven", the path along which Jewish victims were forced to tread to the gas chambers.

He is a professor of the preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine who was also teamed up during the study . The fish represented in the study were wild, and, as such, "they're going to have parasites, they're out in nature".

"She was on board a transport that departed in November 1941 from Frankfurt am Main to Minsk ghetto, " Joel Zissenwein, director of the deportations database project at Yad Vashem, said.

Sobibór was one of several Nazi death camps ― places where Jews were sent specifically to be exterminated.

The only similar pendant known to exist belonged to Anne Frank, writer of the diary read worldwide since its publication in 1947.

The triangular pendant was found in the remains of the Sobibór camp and bears a striking resemblance to a necklace worn by Anne before her death in 1945.

Recent archeological digs in Sobibór in Poland unearthed numerous personal belongings of Holocaust victims who died at the notorious camp.

The ghetto was liquidated in September 1943 and Cohn may have been among some 2,000 of its residents sent to Sobibor, where the pendant lay concealed for more than 70 years.

The findings were made by Israel Antiquities Authority archaeologist Yoram Haimi and his Polish and Dutch colleagues Wojciech Mazurek and Ivar Schute, who dug under the floorboards of a Sorbibor death chamber. "The moving story of Karoline Cohn is symbolic of the shared fate of the Jews murdered there".
