An Auschwitz survivor has shared her horrific experiences at the concentration camp as she celebrated her 99th birthday, declaring “the Nazis did not win.”

Lily Ebert turned 99 on 29 December, and learned just two days later she would receive an MBE on the New Year Honours List.

With the help of her 19-year-old great-grandson, Ms Ebert answers questions on her TikTok account about the realities of the holocaust.
