Anne Frank Exhibition at HMP Highdown

The Anne Frank exhibition was at HMP Highdown from the10-19th October. A very interesting and worthwhile event over 9 days. The exhibition was very well attended and the Guides remarked that it would have been good to have had the exhibition longer!

During this time there were a number of workshops. Eva Clarke was the guest speaker, and told her own story actually being born in Mauthausen Concentration camp. Both her and her mother miraculously survived these horrors, and rebuilt their lives in the UK. A remarkable story and very much appreciated by all prisoners and staff who attended.

Leah Thorn also did some outstanding work with her creative writing group and produced an anthology of work entitled ‘To Stem a Tide’ some of which was performed at the Clinks fundraising lunch on the last day of the event.
