Published 29 November 2011. Matt Lucas uploaded an impression of Boris Johnson onto Twitter following the Prime Minister’s lockdown update. But while some are delighted with his take on the issue, others are not so happy.
Jewish comedian, actor and writer Matt Lucas is among the celebrities who have heard the moving experiences of Holocaust survivors to mark Yom HaShoah.
Lucas, alongside fellow celebs Ronnie O’Sullivan, broadcaster Robert Peston, Baroness Karren Brady and Love Island’s Eyal Booker, were paired up with Holocaust survivors in a series of one-to-one interviews.
The Meet the Survivors videos have been released today as a virtual March of the Living, which in pre-pandemic times would see more than 10,000 people ‘march’ the 3km from the gates of the Auschwitz concentration camp to the gas chambers at Birkenau as a tribute to all those murdered by the Nazis.
Lucas met 93-year-old survivor Harry Olmer. “It’s so important to remember the Holocaust as Harry himself has said repeatedly,” said the actor.
“I’ve really seen an extraordinary glimpse into the power of the human spirit. He’s a survivor. If we forget these stories, and what happened and why, we’re at risk of it repeating itself.”
Robert Peston, ITV’s political editor, met Lily Ebert, a 97-year-old survivor. “There’s too many people that walk around naively thinking that was the past,” he said.
“But unless we realise that this is something that happened to people alive today.”

Added the following format for rendering audio files in EDIT mode. I’m looking into getting rid of my computer and solely work on an iPad. What’s holding me back is library management with Rekordbox. At this stage, I don’t think that it’s possible to import music directly to the iOS app, without having a computer in between. Rekordbox for iOS is a music management application, so it doesn't have the functions needed for DJing. For DJing, you can load tracks from rekordbox for iOS to a CDJ/XDJ via a PRO DJ LINK connection.
Scott Saunders, the founder of March of the Living UK, said: “The Holocaust survivors are living embodiments of what it means to show resilience in the face of hatred and adversity.
“The incredibly powerful Meet the Survivors series of films with Matt, Ronnie, Robert, Karren and Eyal will help to educate people about the atrocities of the Holocaust and with that knowledge hopefully make sure that something like that will never happen again.”
