Pembrokeshire artist makes film for Holocaust Memorial Day

A film made by a Pembrokeshire animator will mark Holocaust Memorial Day and the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau on 27 January.

Gemma Green-Hope, from Newport, has joined actor and writer Stephen Fry and five other British artists to retell stories from survivors.

The Memory Makers project, run by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, saw artists paired with Holocaust and Bosnian genocide survivors living in the UK.

Ms Green-Hope met Ivor Perl, 82, who was 11 when he was taken to Auschwitz and survived with the help of his older brother.
