Michigan's Holocaust Memorial Center has announced plans for a five-million-dollar children's gallery.

Officials of the museum in Farmington Hills says the new gallery will be designed to help children 10 and younger comprehend the killing of six million Jews under Nazi rule.

Rabbi Charles Rosenzveig founded the suburban Detroit museum and says several educators have asked for an area for children as young as six.

He says officials will start fund-raising in coming weeks, and will apply for grants.

A smaller museum opened in 1984 in West Bloomfield, and the current museum opened in 2004.
