Ten survivors of the Holocaust have been recorded telling their stories for posterity by specialist 3D technology.

Images of the 10 will be projected into an armchair, using laser technology, and voice recognition technology will “answer” the audience’s questions.

The £900,000 scheme, partly funded by the Arts Council, has been set up by the National Holocaust Centre and Museum, based in Laxton, in Nottinghamshire, and Bright White, a design and management company based in York.

They hope it will help keep the survivors’ stories alive for years into the future. They will begin playing the projections to audiences at the museum from January.

BBC Inside Out’s Marie Ashby reports.

Inside Out is broadcast on BBC One East Midlands at 19:30 on Monday 12 October and nationwide for 30 days thereafter on the iPlayer.
