Breaking News

Brandenburg state Interior Minister Joerg Schoenbohm said the search was to begin on Wednesday - the 64th anniversary of the liberation of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp.

The mass grave, which is believed to hold the remains of 753 prisoners, is on the grounds of the former Lieberose forced-labor camp, a satellite camp of Sachsenhausen, located around 120 kilometers (75 miles) southeast of Berlin. The grave is thought to be the largest in Germany outside the walls of a former concentration camp.
