US Museum Seeks to Identify Children of Holocaust
WASHINGTON (AP).- The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum is trying to identify more than 1,000 children in photos that date from when they were scattered across Europe at the end of World War II and taken in by relief agencies.

The museum's "Remember Me" project seeks the public's help in identifying 1,100 children among tens of thousands who were uprooted by the war. The museum is posting the pictures online and plans to publish many images in newspapers and online forums.

The images come from the Holocaust Museum's collections, as well as the American Jewish Archives and the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York.

Museum officials hope to learn who the children are, what happened to them and help reconnect them to relatives who may also have been scattered.
