WASHINGTON: A man who survived the Holocaust as a boy by hiding in basements and attics urged a group of countries on Wednesday to speed the opening of millions of files on Nazi concentration camps and their victims.

Leo Rechter, president the U.S.-based National Association of Jewish Child Holocaust Survivors, told a panel of the House of Representatives how urgent the opening the Nazi war records stored in Bad Arolsen, Germany, is for a dying generation of survivors.
