Holocaust Memorial Day

In advance of Holocaust Memorial Day at the end of January, Ms Dickson gave an emotional assembly to Years 8-12, recounting the story of her grandfather’s escape from Nazi Germany, and that of the British man responsible for saving him, Frank Foley. A memorial has recently been unveiled to Frank Foley, who was a British spy in 1930s Berlin, who used his position to create false papers to allow about 10,000 Jewish Germans to leave the country illegally.

One of the families he helped was that of Ms Dickson’s grandfather, his brother and his parents.

As it says on Frank Foley’s memorial: “He who saves one, saves the world”.
