Discovery Sets Global Telecast to Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Discovery Communications has set a global telecast of the Holocaust documentary “One Day in Auschwitz” in more than 220 countries on Jan. 25 to mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camp.

The telecast is being done in partnership with the USC Shoah Foundation in connection with International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The film follows Polish-English Holocaust survivor Kitty Hart-Moxon as she returns to Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, where she and her mother spent two years as prisoners in World War II, 70 years after her liberation. The same day as the documentary’s global broadcast, Discovery will air Steven Spielberg’s epic “Schindler’s List” in the U.K., Australia, New Zealand and Africa as well as on American Heroes Channel in the United States without commercial interruption.

“‘One Day in Auschwitz’ shares a first-hand account of an important historical lesson, which is critical for us to preserve for future generations, as we lose more survivors and witnesses with each passing day,” said David Zaslav, Discovery Communications president and CEO. “We are honored to share Kitty’s story of inspiration, courage and hope, and proud to work with Steven Spielberg and his USC Shoah Foundation to broadcast these films to our global audience.”

“One Day in Auschwitz” is a production of the USC Shoah Foundation, with Shoah’s Steven D. Smith executive producing, Leslie Wilson producing and Steve Purcell directing.
