Inside world's oldest Holocaust museum

The world's oldest Holocaust museum has moved to a new home in London's Russell Square.

As well as archiving documents from Jewish victims of repression, the museum also holds chilling examples of how the Nazis used games and books to indoctrinate Germany's youth with anti-Semitic values.

The library's content first began to be collected in 1933 by Alfred Wiener, a German Jew. He fled in 1933 for Amsterdam following the rise of the Nazis and worked with others to collect information about events happening in Nazi Germany.

Ben Brakow, the library's director, explained just how rare some of the items are.
