Plot two histograms over one another

Good evening,
I created a plot with histograms and corresponding pdfs. How can I plot the two histograms in each diagram such that the bars of the blue histogram aren't hidden behind the red ones? I found some related answers, in which the parameter facecolor was changed in order to introduce some opacity, but the result did not look satisfy to me regarding the ability to visually distinguish between the two histograms.
Thank you very much for your help!

Play with the color and alpha face to get something you like.
h1 = 0.05 * randn(1, 10000);
h2 = 0.20 * randn(1, 10000);
histogram(h1,'facealpha',.7,'edgecolor','none');
hold on;
histogram(h2,'facealpha',.3,'edgecolor','none');

Thank you for your answer! Your plot looks very good, but, unfortunately, when I apply the exact same code to my data the result looks rather confusing. I attached the raw data of the two histograms, perhaps someone can find a better solution.
