About Jane Haining: The Scot who died in Auschwitz

Jane Haining was born in 1897 in Dunscore in Dumfries, and began working for J & P Coats around 1917 as a secretary under William Peacock. In 1932 Jane became the Matron of the girls home in the Scots Mission in Budapest. In 1944 she was arrested, questioned and detained by the SS and ended her days in the infamous concentration camp.

Paisley Thread Mill Museum has worked with the Church of Scotland to put on a small exhibition telling Jane's story and a display of a few replicas such as her will and last letter.

The display cabinet can be viewed among the other museum displays.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Jane Haining: The Scot who died in Auschwitz are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
