Holocaust body set up in former camp

A new body which will aim to help the recovery of art and property stolen by the Nazis is to be established at a former concentration camp.

Forty six countries have signed a declaration approving the centre at Terezin in the Czech Republic.

The declaration also looks at the immediate needs of the remaining Holocaust survivors, some of whom are living in poverty.
