A Syrian refugee in London has been welcomed into the home of a British couple, whose parents were refugees themselves, fleeing Nazi Germany before World War II. Charles and Catherine Elliott opened their home to refugees because they feel a special empathy for their plight. Baris Cimen of the VOA Turkish Service filed this report from London. Jeff Custer narrates.
A first-of-its-kind photo exhibition has opened in Jerusalem featuring images of the Holocaust, the state-sponsored persecution and killing of 6 million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators during World War II. As VOA's Michael Lipin explains, organizers of the Yad Vashem exhibition say one of their goals is to explain the manipulation of Holocaust images for malign purposes.
