An Important moment for History nerds

especially WWII and War history nerds (H/T Powerline)

Germany announced Tuesday it has agreed to open the Nazi archive of 50 million records that have been stored since the end of World War II.

The Bad Arolsen archive covers 17 million people who were executed or sent to concentration camps or prisons. German Justice Minister Brigitte Zypries announced the government's change of heart in a news conference at the U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington, The New York Times reported.

Our understanding of one of the worst parts of the 20th century is going to improve by a lot.
