Schools of Sanctuary launch - part two


I posted the other day about the Norwich Schools of Sanctuary launch event at Avenue Junior School, which I was proud to attend. This is one of my favourite photos from the occasion and I thought I'd explain a bit more about it.

Here, I'm talking to Joe Stirling: a local Norwich South resident who escaped Nazi Germany and came to the UK as part of the Kindertransport scheme. His parents were killed in Sobibor death camp because of their Jewish heritage.

Joe has been a strong supporter of refugees and vocal about how our country should be doing our bit to make sure children, and others, in need are given a safe home. He's worked with local schools to pass this ethos is passed down to the next generation, and help make sure Norwich can remain an inclusive city for years to come.
