    Most of the artifacts were found during the archaeological research conducted on the grounds of the former death camp. The research was carried out by a group of archaeologists from the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń led by prof. dr hab. Andrzej Kola. The permanent exhibition shows some of post-camp relics, but, due to both a limited space and a nature of the exhibition, these constitute only a small part of the museum collections. Some of the artifacts, which have not been included in the exhibition, are presented above.
