Elizabeth Harrison:
This week marks 70 years since the last convoy of prisoners left Paris on its way to the Nazi concentration camps of World War II.
One of those on board was Jewish-born Jacqui Aubry who had lived out the war in Paris but was arrested just weeks before the city was liberated on 25th August 1944. She was gassed at Auschwitz when it was discovered that she was pregnant.
Her niece, Elizabeth Lucas Harrison, had survived the war by hiding in Belgium and southern France.
Elizabeth, now aged 91, joins Jenni Murray to discuss her life – including how she ended up being sent to meet senior German generals in Belgian Prisoner of War camps in 1947, shortly before the Nuremberg trials. .”
