A Holocaust survivor and a university professor addressed an audience about remembering the atrocities seven decades later.

The talk was held at Braintree District Museum, in Manor Street, Braintree, on Wednesday afternoon.

It was hosted by Professor Rainer Schulze, who co-ordinates the annual Holocaust Memorial events at the University of Essex.

Survivor Frank Bright spoke at the event about his own painful experiences and memories.

Frank, 85, spent a week in Auschwitz as a 16-year-old in 1944, having previously lived in a ghetto for 15 months.

After only a few days, he was moved to Friedland work camp, where he spent the rest of the war making aircraft propellers.

He moved to England shortly after the war ended and now lives in Suffolk.
