VIDEO: Derbyshire school children visit Auschwitz

On Tuesday, 200 children from East Midlands schools, including six from the High Peak, visited Auschwitz.

The visit was organised by the Holocaust Educational Trust as part of their Lessons from Auschwitz programme.

During the day, we visited a Jewish cemetery, Auschwitz and Birkenau, before ending the visit with a service at the memorial.
