Kath Shackleton - Author

Kath Shackleton and the team at Fettle Animation have brought together six stories of Holocaust survivors in this moving graphic novel. Each story is retold in the survivor's own words, allowing them to speak for themselves about their horrifying experiences. All of the survivors - Arek, Heinz, Ruth, Martin, Trude and Suzanne - have settled in and around Leeds. They are active members of the Holocaust Survivor's Friendship Association, whose mission is to preserve the memories and testimony of Holocaust survivors for teaching and learning, and to work towards a more tolerant society. Fettle Animation is an award-winning animation studio based in Yorkshire. They specialise in animated documentaries with quirky, dazzling graphics. The series 'Children of the Holocaust' was created in partnership with BBC Learning and screened on BBC2. It has been nominated for many prizes and awards, including a prestigious BAFTA.
