The visit was part of the Holocaust Educational Trust’s extensive all year round Outreach Programme, which is available to schools across the UK.

Mr Kessler said: “The story of the Holocaust needs to continue to be told, in the hope that we can prevent anything similar in the future.”

Mr Wood at The Deanery said: “It was a privilege for us to welcome Harry to our school and his testimony will remain a powerful reminder of the horrors so many experienced. We are grateful to the Holocaust Educational Trust for co-ordinating the visit.”
