From Holocaust survivor to pop star

BBC Inside Out meets Dorit Oliver-Wolff who lived through the Holocaust and went on to became a famous German singer.

Dorit was a five-year-old Jewish girl living in Hungary when Nazism started to spread across Europe.

Today she is a pensioner living in Eastbourne, but still remembers the trauma of trying to escape from the Nazis and avoid being sent to a concentration camp.

Presenter Natalie Graham followed her story and heard how she escaped death twice.
