Sean Bean presents a series exploring the ways in which wartime experiences have filtered down through the generations.

Kurt Marx came to the UK aboard a Kindertransport in 1939 at the age of 13. His wife Ingrid Marx lived through several years at Auschwitz. This programme centres on the legacy of those profound wartime experiences and some of the the ways in which trauma -- when it is spoken of and when it is not spoken of -- can be transferred down through the generations.

Featuring Kurt Marx, his son Michael Marx and his granddaughter Johanna Marx.

With thanks to Michael Newman of the Association of Jewish Refugees.
