Subject: 60 MINUTES' "Hitler's Secret Archive" (Sunday,Dec.17)

Good afternoon. I wanted to give you a heads-up on a story that will be running this Sunday, Dec. 17 (7PM ET/PT on CBS) on "60 MINUTES" about a long-secret German archive that houses a treasure-trove of information on 17.5 million victims of the Holocaust. The archive, located in the Germantown 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. But 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 this week's meeting of Holocaust deniers in Iran. We're trying to get word out about the story to pople who have a special interest in this subject. So we were hoping you'd consider sending out something to your list serve and/or posting something on your website. Further information will also be available on our website (, which you're welcome to link to from yours.
