Last Thursday saw William and Len spoke about the Early Pestalozzi Children Project to academic staff and Doctor of Education students at the University of Brighton’s Education Research Centre and School of Education in Falmer. The audience was interested in the way the
project has been approached and also in the parallels between refugee experiences after the Second World War and those who have been recently displaced. We are delighted to have extended our Project’s connection to a new academic environment.
Our visit was made even more special by the attendance of the University’s Dr Yaa Asare. Yaa is a life-long friend of the early Pestalozzi children and daughter of a wonderful lady, Irmgard Pollack, who was the Pestalozzi cook (and much more) in those early days.
Our appreciation goes to Heritage Lottery Fund which, through their Sharing Heritage grant, have enabled us to travel to and engage in this seminar.
