CBS News reports that the U.N. War Crimes Commission archive that has largely been locked away for the past 70 years under restricted access at the United Nations will be made freely available to visitors to the research room of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington. Many of those named in the archive were never held accountable for the atrocities they committed.
While many of the crimes detailed in the archive are horrible to even imagine, the contents can be valuable to historians and to genealogists alike. The names of victims are often mentioned, along with the details of their incarceration and deaths. In many cases, families may be able to learn what happened to their missing relatives.
