German Gov't. Unveils secret Nazi files to 60 Minutes

Whether you pass this on or not the youtube videos are fascinating.

This story was aired on CBS' "60 MINUTES" about a long-secret German archive that houses a treasure trove of information on victims of the Holocaust. The archive, located in the German town of Bad Arolsen, is massive (there are 16 miles of shelving containing 50 million pages of documents) and until recently, was off-limits to the public.

After the German government agreed earlier this year to open the archives, CBS News' Scott Pelley traveled there with three Jewish survivors who were able to see their own Holocaust records. It's an incredibly moving piece, all the more poignant in the wake of the meeting of Holocaust deniers.

Notwithstanding Iran and the other denial speeches in the UN, we're trying to get word out about the story to people who may have a special interest in this subject.
It is now more than 60 years after WWII in Europe ended.

This is a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated with the German and Russia peoples looking the other way! Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be "a myth," it is imperative to make sure the world never, ever forgets.

A recreation of the CBS program can be found on You Tube. Here are the links to "CBS Holocaust, Parts 1 & 2"
