To mark Holocaust Memorial Day this year the BBC is showing this film version of Antony Sher’s award-winning performance of the memoirs of Primo Levi.

Sher stars as Levi recounting his arrest by the Nazis in 1943 while fighting for the Italian resistance. He was sent with a group of 650 Italian Jews to the Auschwitz death camp – and was one of only three to survive the ordeal.
