Racism and discrimination at any level should not be tolerated because it can be a foundation for atrocities.

That's according to Charlotte Cohen, a youth adviser to the United Kingdom Holocaust Commission.

She's been attending an event at the UN in New York to observe the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust.

The day, observed annually on 27 January, marks the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp run by the Nazis during the Second World War.

More than a million people, mainly Jews, perished in Auschwitz.

Derrick Mbatha caught up with Ms Cohen who first spoke about the Holocaust Commission in her country.
