The BBC is to broadcast an historic ceremony commemorating the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau later this month.

The annual event known as Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) will be themed this year around the phrase “Stand Together” and mark the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide.

In a bid to honour victims of genocide and preserve their stories, the UK ceremony will be broadcast on 27 January and feature readings, music and testimony from survivors.

BBC Two previously broadcast the UK ceremony organised by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust in 2015 and 2016.
