The reading at the museum's Hall of Remembrance began Sunday and will last through May 8.

During the Days of Remembrance, May 1-8, the museum is commemorating the 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust, as well as the millions of other victims of Nazi persecution, with observances in Washington and throughout the United States.

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Germany awarded its highest civilian honor to a Holocaust scholar at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Germany presented Paul Shapiro, the director of the museum's Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, with the Cross of the Order of Merit for his role in negotiating the terms that in 2007 made accessible to the public the extensive Holocaust-era archives at Bad Arolsen, Germany.

The award was presented Tuesday to Shapiro in a ceremony at the German Embassy in Washington. The museum announced the award on Thursday.
