New evidence has been uncovered helping prove that the World War II Nazi Treblinka was in fact a death camp, and not just a transit camp. Mass graves at the site of the camp were uncovered by British forensic archeologist Caroline Sturdy Colls, who used ground-penetrating radar to search for human remains, The Daily Mail reported on Wednesday.

The search for graves at the camp has been complicated in the past by Jewish law, which forbids disturbing graves. By using the radar, however, Colls managed to locate a large number of human remains buried in mass graves.
