A Hidden Ring Continues to Hold Powerful Meaning

A touching and painful story about the lengths that people will go to hold on to a beloved piece of jewelry in the most dire of circumstances.

According to NPR:

From the outside, it looked like any of the other mugs in the Auschwitz museum.

But on the inside, this one had a secret — faithfully kept for seven decades.

A false bottom concealed a gold necklace and a gold ring inlaid with stones.

The enameled mug was one of more than 12,000 pieces of kitchenware that Nazis stole from people sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp in occupied Poland.”

Tests revealed that the ring has the properties of gold 583, used in products made in Poland in the 1920s.
