Very sadly, we are able to share the news that former student Hans Cohn has passed away after a chest infection. He was born in 1923 and we think he might have been our oldest former student. Hans had an incredible story, much tinged with sadness and discrimination during the Nazi up rise in Germany. We hoping to be able to publish more about his story soon, when we have collated some more information.
