Holocaust Survivor Shares His Story

Posted on 03/07/2017

On Monday 26th of June, year 8 were visited by Henry Schachter.  Henry is a Holocaust survivor and spent time talking about his escape from Poland during World War 2 and his life living under cover before a twist of fate led to him being reunited with his extended family.  He spoke about his life at home before the outbreak of war and the tragic fate of his parents.  He then spent time answering our questions and telling us about how he came to be living in Bournemouth.  Henry was fascinating to listen to and we are very grateful to him for sharing his experiences with us.
