"We don't want this material to be secret"

Waar ligt het accent in deze zin uit The Guardian?

"We don't want this material to be secret," said the archivist, waving at an endless row of shelves packed with fading documents that disappeared off into the darkness. "I am really happy people will see what a rich patrimony we have," he added, before wandering further into the bowels of the Vatican's Secret Archive.

Containing more than 50 miles of shelves packed with an unknown number of papal documents spanning 12 centuries, including correspondence with Genghis Khan's grandson, Wolfgang Mozart and Adolf Hitler, the archive is opening up to the public for the first time on Wednesday with an exhibition showing off 100 documents at Rome's Capitoline Museum".
