with the help from a man, the mau seem of history is a 200,000 square fat museum and will likely be different from any other you've visited. the culmination of a bay area man's lifetime of giving back. images still as haunting today as when the world first saw them six decades ago. hitler's final solution. nowhere was the plan more devastating than in poland. 90% eliminated. one person escaped the holocaust but many in his family did not. he came to this country as a young boy, attended stanford and built a successful real estate business turning his attention to philanthropy, he's been part of a project about the other side of poe lib jews. why has it been so important for you directly? >> i think the history of how jews lived for 1,000 years prior to the holocaust is virtually
unknown. and we felt that's a very important story to tell. >> to tell the story, a state-of-the-art facility that sits on the site of the warsaw ghetto where hundreds of thousands of jews were forced to live before being taken to the death camps. i visited with several holocaust survivors including linda who spent three years at the notorious auschwitz. 60 years after she walked out of auschwitz, she walked in again with me. when you stand here at auschwitz, linda, now 60 years later, do images, emotions run through your mind? >> i have no emotions here. >> no emotions here? >> no emotions here. >> later on our trip, understandably, the emotions came. we stayed in touch until lyindas death a few years ago. i saw with my own eyes how jews were killed. what you're saying this museum is about how jews lived long
before the holocaust. >> that's right. it's a very, very important history because during that 1,000-year period most of the elements of western culture evolves. the revival of jewish life in a country that became a graveyard for millions. comprised of eight salons they take visitors through the different periods of jewish life in poland. when people leave this museum what do you hope they will walk away with? >> well, first and foremost they're going to walk away with a much deeper understand iing o what jewish people globally are all about. the first reaction is almost tund. you're so saturated with things one never knew about. >> and that was dan ashley
reporting. the museum expects to attract a million from around the world. many will come from this country where 80% of all jews are of polish descent. coming up 7 on your side's michael finney takes a close look at a new government lawsuit claiming millions of smartphone users have been misled. what a beautiful shot this morning from our abc 7 roof camera. the bay bridge it there and showers in the south bay, rain as well. lisa argen will let you know how long it's going to last and what you can expe the united states population is going to grow by over 90 million peoplever the next 40 years and almost all the growth is going to be in cities. what's the healthiest and best way for them to grow so that they really become cauldrons of prosperity
and cities of opportunity? what we have found is that if that family is moved info safe, clean, affordable housing, places that have access to great school systems, access to jobs and multiple transportation modes then neighborhood begins to thrive and really really take off. the oxygen of community redevelopment is financing and all this rebuilding that happened could not have happened without organizations like citi. citi has formed a partnership with our company so that we can take all the lessons from the revitalization of urban america to other cities so we are now working in chicago, and in washington d.c., and newark. it's amazing how important safe affordable housing is to the future of our society.

>> reporter: by e-mail the senior vice president and general counsel told 7 on your side we informed all unlimited data plan customers that resulted in nearly 2,000 news stories well before the proem was implemented. the program has affected only about 3% of our customers. the ftc says the language was not understandable and they failed to disclose. the timing of at that ti&t's disclosures. >> they haven't done a single thing that they should have done which is tell consumers at the point of sale that they were going to be throttled. >> reporter: the electronic frontier foundation applauded the lawsuit and questions how at&t goes about throttling.

sandoval balked at $13 million a year when the season started, preferring an offer in hunter pence territory. $18 mill per. sandoval wants to stay here if he can, but the giants will have to pay the panda. >> i'm going to say to everybody out there, pay the man! i love being here with my teammates. i love being here with the fans. i love being a part of this and in five years we got three world series. it's exciting. >> we'll see you back here next year. >> i would love to do that. >> pay the panda! >> the cubs made it official firing rick renteria after one year and hiring joe maddon as their new manager. maddon opted out to seek out a team with more money and a bigger payroll. they have a lot of cash and a legacy of losing the last world series title came 106 years ago. for a while this summer it
looked like klay tomorrhompson's future would be in a t-wolves uniform, but the warriors signed him to a huge year and a max deal four-year extension of $70 million. he is a great shooter and defender, played very well for team usa's gold medal squad and it will be fun to watch klay and curry play together. the warriors home opener is tonight against the lakers. lebron and the caves in chicago and king james would intercept heinri heinrich's pass going coast to coast, acrobatic layup and lebron with 19 in the first half. derek rose comes down awkwardly on kyrie irving's foot and would leave with a sprained ankle. fortunately it was nothing more than that. lebron in overtime. oh, come on! behind the back. and flips it up and in. cavs win 114-108. and a great halloween prank from the phoenix suns and their guard. he teamed up with animatronic dinosaur, a baby tyrannosaurus
