Message in a Bottle

I found this nifty article this morning detailing how a renovation crew at a college situated near the former Auschwitz concentration camp found an old handwritter letter from 1944 stuffed inside a bottle hidden inside a rock wall. The letter is authentic and includes the names of seven young people who believed they would die in the camp. It lists their names, hometowns, the date and several more sentences. Officials said at least two of the people on the list survived. What a neat tidbit of history.
