Two dolls belonging to Jewish sisters sent to Auschwitz were kept by a local French family for 70 years – they’ve now been donated to the Holocaust Memorial in Paris. Archivist Lior Lalieu-Smadja told Newshour about the Memorial’s project to collect documents and objects belonging to Jewish deportees from all over France.

Here’s a link to a clip from today’s BBC Newshour broadcast highlighting the challenging work of collecting archival material for the Holocaust Memorial in Paris.
