Posted on January 30, 2010

Susi Bechhofer visited a school as part of a week of events marking the 65th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. Susi Bechhofer, who escaped Nazi Germany on a Kindertransport in 1939, visited Barr Beacon Language College, and spoke to over 100 pupils about the atrocities and her journey in finding her true identity. For over 50 years Susi did not know her identity, having been sent to an orphanage as a child and brought up as a baptist in Wales.
