BBC seeks Third Generation person for programme about Holocaust

Appeal for assistance from the BBC for those in the UK:

The BBC’s long-running children’s news programme, Newsround, is planning a documentary about the Holocaust. The programme is looking for a child to share their family stories, tracing back their
relatives’ lives during the Holocaust. The child will learn about the significance of what took place and why it’s important for future generations to always remember what happened during this time

• The child needs to be 12 – 14 years old approx. and happy to be filmed in the UK and abroad on this subject

• They should have one or two relatives with different stories to tell, whose lives we can trace from childhood through the time of the Holocaust

• Ideally, their relatives will have documents from the era that we can film (e.g. photos, passports etc)

• The child (plus a parent or grandparent) must be available to travel in the first two weeks of September (this is to be confirmed). They will travel to the countries their relatives were from

• The child must not have visited the countries before and be curious to find out more about their family history.

If you – or anyone you know – are interested in taking part, please contact us before Monday 23 July:
