Remembering the holocaust - one man's story

As the world marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz one survivor from Suffolk has told his family's story.

More than a million people died at Auschwitz in German-occupied Poland - the largest and most notorious Nazi concentration camp.

Frank Bright from Suffolk lived through the ordeal. But his parents and most of his classmates did not. He is 86 now and more determined than ever to keep their memories alive.

Remembering Auschwitz

It's the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the largest and most notorious Nazi concentration camp, Auschwitz in German-occupied Poland. More than a million people died there - it was slaughter on an industrial scale.

Some Jews managed to escape to Britain before war broke out. Martin Cahn's father left Germany when he was a child after he was attacked in the street. Mr Cahn now lives in Impington in Cambridgeshire.

Schools' holocaust work commended

Five Essex schools were highly commended at the first Dora Love Prize evening during Holocaust Memorial Week at the University of Essex.

Schools from across Essex and Suffolk were invited to take part in the competition which was set up to continue the work of Holocaust survivor Dora Love.

Among the nine highly commended projects were entries from Colne Community School, Brightlingsea; Maltings Academy, Witham; Plume School, Maldon; St Bernard’s High School, Westcliff-on-Sea and Tendring Technology School.

The overall winner was Farlingaye High School in Woodbridge for their project "More Than Just a Number". The project included assemblies with every year group and the selling of wristbands with a number referring to a Holocaust victim who could be researched on the school intranet.
