Auschwitz survivor: 'What I told the England squad'

Help

England players have been visiting the Nazi death camp Auschwitz in Poland ahead of Euro 2012.

They met Zigi Shipper, who was interned in a ghetto from the age of 10, then taken to Auschwitz when the Russians drew near.

When he arrived in Auschwitz he saw guards trying to rip babies out of mothers' arms, shooting them if they resisted.

Disabled people, women, children and babies were sent to the gas chambers.

His friends saw their parents, brothers and sisters being taken away to be killed.
