David Kunac's documentary, Drawing Against Oblivion, was also shown for the first time in the UK at the lecture.

Mr Taylor said the event was 'highly moving, challenging and inspiring'.

He said: 'The evening was fantastically successful.

'An audience of more than 150 were captivated by the work of artist Manfred Brockelmann, whose work has provided a lasting legacy to ensure child victims of the holocaust will not be forgotten.

'David Kunac, the film's producer, was proud to present the UK premier of Drawing against Oblivion to Wymondham College students, staff and guests.'

Robin Eaton, the widow of former chair of governors Tom Eaton, was a special guest at the lecture.
