Holocaust victims' remains found in France

Incredibly, there are other victims of the Nazis who may also be finding their way to a final resting place.
Earlier this month, meticulously labeled tissue samples taken from the bodies of Holocaust victims used in Nazi medical research were discovered in jars and test tubes in a cupboard at the University of Strasbourg in France.
According to news reports, the samples were taken from among 86 Jews who were gassed during experiments. News outlets said the autopsy samples were supposed to be used to prosecute August Hirt, a Nazi anatomy researcher.
