Staff and colleagues will be saddened to hear that their much-loved colleague, Roland Ellmer, collapsed last night and subsequently died on the way to hospital.

Roland has been the mainstay of the accounts department at the National Holocaust Centre for the last 6 years and also worked for many years for the Centre's sister charity the Aegis Trust, an international genocide prevention organisation.

His kindly nature, professionalism and solid reliability will be greatly missed by everyone at the Centre.

The Centre offers its deepest condolences to Jacqueline and all the family.
