Life in the city of Auschwitz: the police

Before the Holocaust, 60% of the Polish town Oswiecim was Jewish. Now there are no Jewish families living in the city.

Aware of how easily this could all happen again, the Jewish Museum in the city centre hosts training programmes for Polish police commissioners on how to identify and tackle all types of hate-crime.

Those behind the project told the BBC why this is so important in Poland right now.
