A Holocaust survivor and step-sister of Anne Frank – whose story symbolises Jewish suffering under the Nazis – was in Leeds last Friday to see a play which draws on her own experiences in the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp.

Eva Schloss was guest of honour when ‘And then they came for me – remembering the world of Anne Frank’ was performed in the Martin Sowerby Community Theatre at Ralph Thoresby High School, Holt Park.

This powerful drama by the award-winning US writer James Still tells Eva’s story alongside that of Anne, whose diary detailed the two years her family hid in their annexe of their Amsterdam home before they were discovered by the Nazis.
