Yossi Ben-Dak writes that “60 Minutes” will air a show tonight about a long-secret German archive containing a treasure trove of information on 17.5 million victims of the Holocaust. The archive, located in the German town of Bad Arolsen , is massive (16 miles of shelving containing 50 million pages of documents) and, until recently, was off-limits to the public. The German government agreed earlier this year to open the archives, and CBS News’ Scott Pelley traveled there with three Jewish survivors who were able to see their own Holocaust records. Yossi says it’s an incredibly moving piece, all the more poignant in the wake of this week’s meeting of Holocaust deniers in Iran. Further information is on the CBS News Site.
