The daughter of a Holocaust survivor has been honoured by her alma mater for her life-long commitment promoting love over hate.
Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) graduate Saskia Tepe has been presented with an Alumni Achievement Award.
Saskia penned the memoir Surviving Brigitte’s Secrets, which gained international recognition, detailing the gravity of her mother’s wartime experiences, even after victory day in 1945.
She has dedicated her life educating audiences across the globe about the chilling effects of war, sharing her mum’s story and her own experience as a child refugee in Germany.
