Emmerdale star Charley Webb took to Twitter last night following a moving documentary from Robert Rinder – My Family The Holocaust and Me. The 32-year-old actress said it was “incredibly hard to watch” the programme, which also starred her friend Louisa Clein, who plays Maya Stepney in the ITV soap opera.
“Incredibly hard watch but such an important story to be told and to learn about
@BBCOne #MyFamilyTheHolocaustAndMe,” she wrote on Twitter in view of her 437,900 followers last night.

“Yes it was so very sad and emotional programme,”(sic) agreed one follower, who took to the comments section of her post.
“Totally agree, so very heartbreaking,” added another.

The BBC One documentary sees British criminal barrister Robert, who is best known for his daytime show Judge Rinder, explore his family’s Holocaust stories as well as helping other families discover what happened to their relatives.
Emmerdale star Louisa was joined by her sister Natalie as the pair learnt about their Dutch Jewish grandparents, who survived.
They also learnt that their grandmother worked with the Dutch resistance and her sister Els, who was a dancer before the war and was murdered in Sobibor.
The two-part series will continue next Monday at 9pm.
