Extermination camp remains buried in Rockland

Posted: Updated:

A burial was held Thursday afternoon for human remains found at the Holocaust Museum and Center for Tolerance and Education.

The remains were found last January inside a box at the museum in Rockland.

The box was donated by a local survivor who visited the Chelmno extermination camp in Poland after World War II.

The burial took place at the Monsey Jewish Cemetery.

More than 100 people gathered for the event, including some Holocaust survivors.
