Inspiring headteacher to Miliband brothers and Sienna Miller has died

Posted on January 9, 2012

Few lives so encapsulated the mammoth historical and political changes during 20th Century Europe as that of Claire Rauter, who has died aged 87. As a child she fled Nazi persecution, in her adolescence she swapped ideas with Londons intelligentsia, and in adulthood she made it her life’s work to bring Steiner’s humanistic educational approach to the masses. Born in Vienna in 1924 to Jewish parents, Mrs Rauter and her younger brother Freddy boarded a train out of Austria 15 years later.
