Jane Haining: A Life of Love and Courage

We start Winter Words with a book that will make you believe true heroes really do exist. Jane Haining was a farmer's daughter from Galloway who went to work at the Scottish Jewish Mission School in Budapest in 1932. When war broke out, she refused to leave her pupils, writing: “If these children need me in days of sunshine, how much more do they need me in days of darkness?”

Author Mary Miller’s lifelong dedication to the care of children in difficult situations drew her to explore Jane Haining’s devotion, and she joins us to discuss and read the first biography of one of Scotland’s greatest daughters.
