The atrocities committed by the Nazis during the Second World War were revisited on Tuesday as the UN observed the International Day of Commemoration of the Victims of the Holocaust.

The day marks the liberation of the notorious Auschwitz-Berkenau concentration and extermination camp on 27th January.

The now notorious acts committed at the camp included sending people, many of them Jews, to gas chambers and doing experiments on living human beings.

Derrick Mbatha sat down with one of the survivors of the Holocaust, Jona Laks who recalled her ordeal.
