European and Israeli researchers have discovered women's jewelry and pins near the Sobibór extermination camp in Poland.

200,000 people were murdered at the Sobibór camp during the years 1942-43.

Among the discoveries is a pendant with a birth date and the name Carolina Cohen, who is estimated to be a girl from Frankfurt.

A nearly identical pendant belonging to Anne Frank has also been found. Researchers are now trying to contact Frank's family in an attempt to verify if the two girls were related.

In addition, near the building's foundation, hair pins and jewelry were discovered. These items probably fell beneath the floorboards during World War II, and sat untouched until they were discovered a few weeks ago.
