Liverpool FC's Academy marked Holocaust Memorial Day by hearing the personal story of a Holocaust survivor whose family was devastated by the Nazis.

Joanna Millan spoke with players from the club’s U18s group about how her family life in Berlin as a young child came under attack as Jews became targets for persecution.

Joanna discovered her grandmother was deported from Berlin and murdered in the gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

“The beautiful game is a shining example of the good that sport can do and I am delighted that Liverpool FC is leading the way to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.

Joanna told the Academy players how her father was forced to work on the streets wearing the Star of David, which identified him as a Jew.

Phil Roscoe, LFC’s Academy player care manager, said: “Our Academy visits to Auschwitz over the years have always left a deep impression on the players and staff.

She has spent many years researching what happened to her family and how she came to end up living in England.
