Nazi archive gives digital records to Holocaust museums in US, Israel

Digital copies bearing the names of some 3.5 million people displaced after World War II have been handed over to Holocaust memorial groups and museums in the United States, Israel and Poland. The International Tracing Service of the International Committee of the Red Cross says it has handed over more of the documents to the Yad Vashem Memorial in Jerusalem, the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington and the Warsaw-based National Institute of Remembrance. The ITS says in Tuesday's statement that the copies of the index cards feature the names of people who were freed from Nazi concentration and labor camps as well as prisoners of war.
