Those who stand for the Jewish people also stand by the sentiment that we will never let the world forget the horrors of the Holocaust. And recently, Arutz Sheva's Ido Ben Porat reports, forgotten remains of Jewish victims of Nazi experiments were rediscovered in a medical institute in Munich, Germany:

During renovations at the Max Planck Psychiatric Institute in Munich, dozens of brains and brain parts of Jewish victims of the Holocaust were discovered, according to Army Radio this morning (Wednesday).

In the wake of the discovery, a committee has been established in order to ascertain in greater detail the story of the samples.

The Max Planck Institute, itself, claims that the samples were once used by the Nazi brain researcher Julius Hallervorden, who conducted experiments on humans during and after the rule of the Nazis, and even served for a period as the head of the neuropathology department at the Institute, then known as the "Kaiser Wilhelm Institute."

The newly-formed research committee has already started to identify some of the victims from whom the samples were taken, with the goal of bringing them to a mass grave, as was done with previously discovered samples. This, however, is a process that could take months, even years.
