Auschwitz survivor: 'They killed them, I lost everybody'

A 91-year-old Holocaust survivor recalls how he was one of only three out of 183 young people to be spared on their arrival at the Auschwitz death camp.

Arek Hersh, who now lives in Leeds, says he tells his story to remind younger generations of the realities of the Holocaust.

He said: "I think it's very important to teach the world people shouldn't be aggressive to each other."

His comments coincided with the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
