Ruth Joseph, whose mother was one of 10,000 child refugees who fled Nazi Germany in the kindertransport, wants every child in Wales to read Anne Frank’s diary as part of their schooling. Her mother, Judith Heyman, was sent to Britain at the age of 12. She carried the family’s set of candlesticks used to celebrate the Sabbath. Judith’s parents would not escape the Holocaust. They were taken to Latvia and then killed.
