History students from Weston College’s sixth form centre enjoyed a unique insight into the 20th century’s greatest atrocity last week.

Holocaust survivor Janine Webber visited the A-level class to recount her experiences in Poland after German forces invaded in 1941, which saw family members moved to a concentration camp and Janine hidden by sympathisers.

Lecturer Charlotte Copestake said: “It was a privilege for us to welcome Janine Webber and her testimony will remain a powerful reminder of the horrors so many experienced.”
