Examining the legacy of the Nazi death camp and what it can teach us today.

When British troops liberated the Belsen Nazi death camp in April 1945, war correspondent Richard Dimbleby made a historic broadcast, revealing to the world for the first time the true horror of the Holocaust.

Now, 76 years on, broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby traces his father’s footsteps, exploring Belsen’s legacy and its important lessons for the present day.

We follow as he visits Anne Frank’s grave and talks to both survivors and Germans who lived and worked nearby. He’ll also reflect on the recent and worrying resurgence of antisemitism in Europe.
