JANE HAINING: A LIFE OF LOVE AND COURAGE

Synopsis

Jane Haining was undoubtedly one of Scotland's heroines. A farmer's daughter from Galloway, Jane went to work at the Scottish Jewish Mission School in Budapest in 1932, where she was in charge of around 50 orphan girls. She refused orders to flee the country in March 1944 when Hungary was invaded by the Nazis. Her courage and self-sacrifice, her choice to stay and to protect the children in her care, has made her an inspiration to many.
