Mary Miller in conversation with Ajay Close

In 2010, the British Government named Jane Haining a ‘British Hero of the Holocaust’ for her efforts to protect Jewish schoolchildren in Hungary during World War 2. Inspired by her own work with children in arduous circumstances, Mary Miller has produced a powerful and tender account of this Scottish heroine, her devotion to pupils in her care and her death in Auschwitz.  Mary’s book A Life of Love and Courage describes the days of sunshine and days of darkness.

Mary is in conversation with novelist Ajay Close author of A Petrol Scented Spring, based on a group of Scottish suffragettes imprisoned in Perth.
