Jane Haining memorial stone, Calton Hill
The long shadow of Auschwitz extends into central Edinburgh in the form of this stone dedicated to the memory of Jane Haining, Church of Scotland missionary in wartime Budapest. The Kirk had accepted Jewish children into its care and when the 1944 deportations began, rather than abandon her charges, Jane Haining chose to join them in their journey. She perished along with them in one of the gas chambers at Birkenau.
