Anne Frank Trust UK's CEO Tim Robertson said: "We were so inspired by the young people of Redbridge. They were some of the most engaged and articulate peer guides we have ever had for our exhibition.

"We hope this is the start of a fruitful partnership."

The exhibition, which runs until December 20, was organised in partnership with the council in the lead up to a Holocaust Memorial Day service which will be held at the Valentines Park Memorial Garden on Monday January 27 at 11am.

This will mark 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau and the 25th anniversary of the genocide in Bosnia.
