Lady Baines spoke about her own experiences of persecution under Nazi rule and that of her family’s experiences. In a rare turn of events, Lady Baines was able to reunited with both her mother and father during the war and they remained in England.

Year 9 listened attentively and had an opportunity to ask questions about the Holocaust in general and the experiences Lady Baines had described.
