Jane Haining (1897-1944)

1897 - 1944

Jane Haining was a Church of Scotland missionary to the Jews, from Dunscore, Dumfries. She worked in Budapest, where she was arrested by the Nazis in 1944. She died in the concentration camp at Auschwitz later that year.

The mission that Jane Haining went to serve in Budapest, Hungary, began almost 100 years before she went there. Her job was to look after the Jewish girls in the school, where they not only worked hard at their lessons, but where they slept in shared rooms and where they had their food.
