Germany agreed to drop its resistance to the opening of one of the world’s largest Holocaust archives. Brigitte Zypries, the German justice minister, made the announcement April 18 in Washington at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, the institution that led the call in recent months to open archives of up to 50 million documents at Bad Arolsen, Germany.
The Archive of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency includes articles published from 1923 to 2008. Archive stories reflect the journalistic standards and practices of the time they were published.
