To commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day, 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 we've chosen to commemorate the unimaginable horror of the Holocaust, aided by schoolchildren, campaigners and a 93-year-old survivor of Auschwitz.

Produced by Marc Haynes and Nick Minter
An Unusual production for BBC Radio 4.
