A Canadian pinpointed the secret tunnel Nazi prisoners dug to escape the Holocaust in Lithuania | National Post
The tunnel is tinged with historical meaning. Up to 100,000 people, including 70,000 Jews, were slaughtered between 1941-1944 at Poneriai, one of the first sites of Nazi genocide.
“It was essentially ground zero of the Holocaust,” Bauman said. He spoke with the National Post about the discovery of the tunnel, the great escape of April 1944, and what the story of the Brigade means seven decades onward.
