A film which allows museum visitors to ask questions of Holocaust survivors has won an award.
The Forever Project film, shown at The National Holocaust Centre And Museum, Laxton, won in the £½m-£5m category at the Charity Film Awards.

The announcement was made at a special ceremony at BAFTA.

Four Holocaust survivors - Joan Salter, Rudi Oppenheimer, Janine Webber and Harry Bibring - are featured in the film.

It was shot over two days at locations in London, and at the centre itself.

Digital technologies allow visitors to the centre to ask questions to and hear answers from the survivors.

Sarah Coward, development director at the centre, said: "We would like to thank the survivors and young people who took part: they helped to make the project shine, and the survivors’ commitment and contribution is remarkable.

"The film has had a great impact, helping us to get thousands more people engaged with our work."
