Anne Frank's Trees: Keeping The Memory Alive

Tuesday 27 January



To commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day, children’s novelist and poet Michael Rosen examines the ways in which Britain remembers the darkest period in modern history.

From Britain's only day centre catering solely for Holocaust survivors to the narrow attic staircase of Anne Frank's House in Amsterdam via an art installation in Huddersfield and a primary school in Potters Bar, Michael looks at the many different ways in which people have chosen to commemorate the unimaginable horror of the Holocaust. He is aided by schoolchildren, campaigners and a 93-year-old survivor of Auschwitz.
