More than 60 years after the end of World War II, there are countless people who still don’t know the fate of family members and friends killed in the Holocaust.

The American Red Cross Holocaust and War Victims Tracing Service has been in operation since 1990, but with the recent release of thousands of documents in Germany, there is new hope in finding answers.

”They are the ones who kept most of the records. It probably doubles our capacity to search,” said Tom McFadden, spokesman for the American Red Cross Broward County Chapter, based in Plantation.
