Since 1947 the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial & Museum in Poland has been working to highlight the atrocities of the Holocaust. Standing on the site of the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp, the museum displays thousands of objects stolen from Jews. One of these items, a mug, has recently been found to carry a secret – more than 70 years after it was first exhibited by the museum.
