For Holo­caust Me­mo­rial Day, the BBC marks the 70th an­niver­sary of the lib­er­a­tion of Auschwitz-Birke­nau with a sea­son of spe­cial pro­grammes.

Th­ese in­clude a doc­u­men­tary in which a trio of women re­flect on the Holo­caust: Auschwitz sur­vivor Kitty Hart-Moxon dis­cusses her strug­gle to talk about what she suf­fered; chil­dren’s au­thor Ju­dith Kerr ( When Hitler Stole Pink Rab­bit and the Mog books) re­mem­bers her child­hood es­cape from Nazi Ger­many; and Se­nior Re­form Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner learns about the fate of her fore­bears.

Other pro­grammes in the sea­son in­clude Touched By Auschwitz (BBC Two), which charts the lives of six sur­vivors; and The Eich­mann Show (BBC Two), which looks at the tele­vis­ing of the 1961 trial of se­nior SS man Adolf Eich­mann, seen as one of the chief ar­chi­tects of the Holo­caust. The fea­ture- length drama stars Martin Free­man and An­thony LaPaglia.
