Anne Frank Exhibition at HMP Exeter

You're Getting Transferred, Anon, HM Prison Shotts
Art by Offenders-Courtesy of the Koestler Trust

The exhibition held over 2 weeks in the Chapel of HMP Exeter.
The highlight of this event was the guest speaker Mr Arnold Kanarek who spoke to great effect about his family. His grandparents had fled the Nazi terror in Europe, however the majority of his extended family had cruelly perished during this time. A fascinating story brought up to date with Arnold’s own story and fascinating career as professional musician and fashion designer amongst other things.
 Steve Gadd (Prison Project Manager) worked with a very strong group of guides, who devised their own method of presentation, and had some very good ideas as to additional material addressing prisoners issues.
Thanks to Governor Ian Napper and the Rev Bill Birdwood for hosting this very memorable event.
