Our first visit to HMYOI Deerbolt, a Cat C young offenders prison in a picturesque location near Barnard Castle in County Durham.
Working with a group of enthusiastic group of young men who quickly grasped the relevance of Anne’s story to today, and who very ably presented the exhibition to all visitors including their peers.
The highlight of the event was a talk from Mrs Eva Clarke.
Eva was actually born in Mauthausen Concentration camp and miraculously survived. It is an extraordinary story, and she had the audience completely spellbound.
We would all like to thank Organisers Dave bates and Kati Cowley for doing such a great job.
