Holocaust survivor visits the Anglo

Holocaust survivor Susie Barnett visited the school to talk to Year 9 students. Susie was born in Germany to the Frankenberg family. She told the story of her family in pre-war Germany, how they all escaped individually but the price they nonetheless paid as a family.

Mr Russell, Subject Leader RS and Philosophy said “The Year 9 students listened intently to Susie’s fascinating and moving story, clearly appreciating the rare opportunity to hear survivor testimony. Susie’s closing thought was an important one for us all – the need to promote tolerance and to respect diversity”.
