Mary Miller discusses her moving new biography of one of Scotland’s great heroines. In 1932, Galloway farmer’s daughter Jane Haining went to work at a Jewish school in Budapest. When the Second World War broke out, she went back to Hungary to try to protect the school’s children, a course of action that would lead to her arrest by the Gestapo and her death at Auschwitz.
