Chasing Shadows

After 45 years, Hugo Gryn returned to the hometown, Berehovo, from where he was deported to Auschwitz in 1944 at the age of 13 along with 15,000 Jews.

He survived nearly a year as a slave labourer and two death marches before coming to Britain as a child survivor.

Hugo Gryn went on to become a popular rabbi and broadcaster, perhaps best known as a regular panelist on Radio 4's Moral Maze.

The film is directed by his daughter Naomi Gryn, a writer and documentary filmmaker and the screening will be following by a Q&A with her.
