THE story of the Holocaust will be presented in a way appropriate for children at a family event at Dewsbury Museum.
The event tomorrow is one of 100 going on around the country to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.
The events commemorate the anniversary of the liberation of the Nazis' most notorious camp at Auschwitz and focuses on the stories of children at the time of the persecution of the Jews.
There will be displays which will feature some of the local survivors of the Kinder transport, the 10,000 children who managed to escape to Britain before the outbreak of war.
It also has displays on Anne Frank, who has become the most famous victim of the Holocaust through her diary.
Museum officer Grant Scanlan said: "Anne Frank's diary is an incredible book. It has been translated into 67 languages and is one of the most widely-read books in the world."
Extracts from the diary will be read at the event. Other activities include diary making, dip-pen writing and games.
The event is free and will take place from 1pm to 4pm in Dewsbury Museum at Crow Nest Park, Heckmondwike Road.
