Anne Frank: A History for Today exhibition visits HMP Altcourse

HMP Altcourse in Liverpool
January 2012 kicked off with a welcome return to HMP Altcourse in Liverpool. A well organised event and dedicated group of prisoner guides made this extremely memorable.

Highlights of this event were our guest speakers Mrs Sylvia Lancaster, mother of murdered Goth teenager Sophie Lancaster (whose story is featured in our prison exhibition) and Holocaust survivor Mrs Trude Silman. All who attended their talks were very moved by their stories. Both ladies were also interviewed for the in-house radio station run by the prisoners of Altcourse.

Amongst the guests at the closing ceremony were the Mayor and High Sheriff of Liverpool, Mrs Sylvia Lancaster, members of staff, prisoners, and prison Governor Mr John McLaughlin. It was a very moving event. Special thanks to Mr Martin Randall (Equality & Inclusion Manager) for doing such a great job!
