Daniel Radcliffe is among several major names donating their old eyeglasses to an exhibit honoring victims of the Holocaust.

The Harry Potter, 18, isn't giving away his famous wizard character spectacles – but his first pair of glasses, an oval, metal-framed pair from when he was 6.

Other stars donating glasses to the artwork, which is inspired by a famous WWII picture of a mountain of spectacles confiscated from Holocaust victims and is part of National Holocaust Memorial Day, include Yoko Ono, Stephen Fry, Jerry Springer, Paul O'Grady and Ronnie Corbett.

Liverpool Lord Mayor Paul Clark said of Radcliffe's donation: "It is a wonderful gesture by Daniel, particularly as he will help us reach the younger generations. The glasses will form part of a symbolic piece of artwork which will help people to learn how important it is to never forget the horrors of the Holocaust."
