You can hear an excerpt here, sung by Lily Blackmore, Sue Casson and
'I went to a pre-view of the Russian film in Auschwitz concentration camp. When one sees children of Mo's age and younger in this horrible place and the clothes of infants who were killed, it is worth a year of our lives to help to register for ever and with practical result the reasoned horror of humanity.'
'It is just as well that in respect of the Nazi war crimes the apologist of the future will be confronted by the admissions of the many found guilty and the mass of incriminating documents produced at the trials'.

Mo was Miranda, Maxwell Fyfe’s 7 year old daughter. Considering this body of evidence of Nazi brutality led him directly to his later work drafting the European Convention on Human Rights.
