60 Minutes – Holocaust Archive

I recently received links to this story that aired on CBS’s 60 MINUTES about a massive secret German archive containing information on 17.5 million victims of the Holocaust. Located in the German town of Bad Arolsen, the archive has 16 miles of shelving containing 50 million pages of documents and until recently, was off-limits to the public.

After the German government agreed to open the archives, CBS News’ Scott Pelley traveled there with three Jewish survivors who were able to see their own Holocaust records.  This serves as another important record of why we can’t forget.
