Israel Gutman: Holocaust survivor and researcher

Israel Gutman, who died in Jerusalem on 30 September at the age of 90, survived the Nazi atrocities of the Second World War then dedicated his life to researching the Holocaust.

Marianne Faithfull on Who Do You Think You Are?

Last night's viewing: Marianne Faithfull unearths Nazi-era intrigue in Who Do You Think You Are?

OK, so Marianne Faithfull was once a convent girl who became a 1960s wild child, had a baby with an art dealer and then a four-year relationship with Mick Jagger before becoming a homeless heroin addict and roaming the streets of London like a latter-day Ophelia. This generous quota of melodrama and heartbreak in early life all sounded a bit tame, though, compared to what her mother and maternal grandparents went through during the Second World War.
