BERLIN, May 8 (Xinhua) — Germany on Monday published a new list of names of all the known German Jews murdered in the Holocaust in the Second World War as an update to a list with only victims from former West Germany published 20 years ago.

The four-volume book, containing 150,000 names in alphabetical order along with vital data and dates of detention, now includes the names of Jews who had lived in eastern Germany and parts of modern-day Poland which were controlled by Germany before the Second World War.

According to historians, up to 600,000 Jews lived in Germany before the rise of the Nazis, the German news agency DPA reported.
