Year 6 students were privileged to meet Holocaust survivor Joseph De Haan, aged 97, during an excursion this week to the Jewish Holocaust Centre in Elsternwick.

Born in Amsterdam, this amazing man was taken in by family friends and brave Christians from the Dutch underground resistance movement, after the Germans invaded the Netherlands in 1940. He was eventually liberated, but his brother died in a concentration camp and his father and stepmother were murdered in Auschwitz.
