World War II records opened to public

From UN Radio: 

New records of war crimes that took place during World War II have been opened to the public at the US Holocaust Museum in Washington DC.

They were collected in the mid-1940s by the UN War Crimes Commission, created in London in 1943.

The Commission gathered evidence about what was happening to the Jewish people and other persecuted groups around the world.

Brigit Sisk, the United Nations' chief archivist, is speaking on Tuesday at UN Headquarters about the importance of preserving this history.

Stephanie Coutrix began by asking her why the Commission was established.
