Today, across the world, people will be remembering the Holocaust.
It's a chance for people to take time to think about the millions
of Jewish people and others who were killed by Hitler and his
When World War II broke out in 1939, Germany was run
Hitler thought Jewish people were inferior,
Anti-Jewish laws were passed, Jewish shops had their windows smashed,
and Jewish people were forced out of their homes.
The Nazis rounded up millions of Jews, as well as disabled people,
gay people, and other groups Hitler thought were inferior,
and sent them to prisons called concentration camps.
Families were split up, forced to do hard physical work,
Millions of people were deliberately killed there.
It's thought nearly seven out of every ten Jews
Some children did manage to escape Nazi Germany.
Ruth was one of those who managed to escape.
Street by street Jews were cleared, and any moment
We opened the door to a woman from the British Embassy
She bought the entry visa to Britain, train tickets
to get through Germany, through Holland, and
Heinz also managed to escape the Holocaust.
He tried very hard to get me a trainee post and finally
We managed to get visas for our parents and they came,

Now, Tim Peake is going to be heading back into space!
But not just yet - he made the announcement
while showing off the capsule which took him up to
the International Space Station, and you've been having
And the great news is the European Space Agency and the UK
are going to be involved in that Space Station programme until 2024,
so that gives myself and my other classmates of 2009 a second
opportunity to go back to the Space Station.
Tim made history last year when he became the first person
representing Britain to live on the International Space Station.
During the six months he spent orbiting Earth,
he became the first British astronaut to do a spacewalk.
He ran a marathon up there, he even explained
Take the cap off, turn on the fan, and the airflow keeps everything
And also, for number two, the airflow does the same thing.
How excited are you that Tim is going back to space?
I think it's really exciting and quite brave, because he's just
got back and he's not seen his family for ages.
I think there will be lots of adventures coming up for Tim Peake
and it will be fun. I think it's going to be a chance
for him to do whatever he didn't do So what should he do
this time around? I would like to see him sing and
uploaded all to YouTube. I'd like to see him
do the dad challenge. I would like to see him break a
world record and let it go viral. I want to see him do a bottle flip
and land it, because in space, because of the zero gravity,
it might not land, and also it's I went to see him learn at least one
Well, we know he's going back, but how will he get there?
We know he won't be using his old space capsule,
that's now sitting in the National Science Museum
in London, so you can go and imagine what going into space
Now, zoo staff are helping this rare sea turtle is on its way to recovery
after it got a little bit lost last year.
The turtle, called Menai, was found washed up on a beach
in Wales in November, and was rescued by wildlife
Menai is a rare Olive Ridley turtle, which are usually found in much
Vets are giving her lots of checks to make sure she is healthy,
She's starting to eat really, really well now.
She's demolishing a couple of kilos of calamari a day.
And she's a real personality, she likes to see us.
She seems to recognise people, she knows what's going on.
You might have heard of a mobile library,
Well, more than 1200 people in Belgium lent a hand to move
They formed a human chain over a distance of 250 metres to take
How brilliant is that? Fantastic idea.
That's all from me, Newsround's back this afternoon at 4.20pm.
