BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - The Raleigh County Veteran's Museum dedicated a cell door from a concentration camp in honor of National Holocaust Remembrance day. 

The door was used in to hold prisoners in at Dachau, the first concentration camp in Germany.

Museum officials say they get things like this all the time and they never know what they're going to get.

"I coined a phrase several years ago; I never know what's coming through the doors. I said that long before pawn stars," James Toler said.

The door from the concentration camp was given to the museum by an anonymous donor recently. Veterans at the Museum say they have no idea where it's been all this time.
There were 32,000 recorded deaths at Dachau and an estimated 11 million in the Holocaust altogether.
