Holocaust Memorial Day: Kindertransport remembered in music

The millions of Jews and others killed during the Holocaust are to be remembered in services across the UK, as part of Holocaust Memorial Day.

Candles will be lit at ceremonies in London and at the National Memorial Arboretum on the 68th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

Composer Carl Davis has written a piece of music to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day and the journey made by Jewish children from Nazi-occupied Europe, known as Kindertransport.
