Ten years ago, 27 January was designated Holocaust Memorial Day. The date was chosen because on 27 January 1945 Soviet soldiers liberated the Auschwitz concentration camps.

More recent genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda and Darfur are also remembered on this date.

Last Sunday, Peter Baker talked with Dr Martin Stern, a holocaust survivor on All Things Considered on BBC Radio Wales. In this short audio clip, Martin Stern tells how the story of how, as a young boy of five living in Amsterdam, he was taken out of school and taken to an interrogation centre.
