How a young boy escaped Auschwitz horror

A new opera will tell the story of how 11-year-old Simon Gronowski escaped incarceration in Auschwitz in 1943, after being pushed from the train transporting the family to the camp by his mother.

The BBC's Robin Gibson went to meet Mr Gronowski, who is now 83 years old.
