Martin is a frequent speaker at the Centre.  The testimony below is a talk he gave to a Sixth Form Conference held at the Centre. He describes the early years of his life in Holland, the difficulties he faced as a small boy of 5 years old and in particular how he was tricked into betraying his guardian. He was eventually sent to a concentration camp, liberated and came to the UK.
