In the past decade Richard Freund has pioneered a new form of non-invasive archaeology which allows researchers to glean data about crucial sites without desecrating the burials that may be located below the ground. In this lecture Dr. Freund will show what has been done at the Sobibor Extermination Camp in Poland and in the Ponar Burial Pits in Lithuania to answer key questions about what exactly occurred at these sites during the Holocaust.
