The life and achievements of Holocaust survivor has been given a permanent dedication at a boys' school.

Austrian-born Harry Bibring was a Jewish child refugee evacuated to Britain before the outbreak of World War Two.

His family's shop in Vienna was destroyed in November 1938 by the Nazis - two days of terror against the Jews which later came to be called Kristallnacht.

Mr Bibring and his sister fled to the UK by train.

Mr Bibring would later train and work as an engineer and after his retirement, he dedicated his life to educating young people about the Holocaust, receiving a British Empire Medal for his work.

For a decade, Mr Bibring, who died in January last year at the age of 93, visited Watford Grammar School for Boys during Holocaust Memorial Week.

In his honour, the senior annual prize for philosophy, ethics, and religion (PRE) at the school has been renamed as 'The Harry Bibring Award for Excellence in PRE’

Tanya Charlton, head of PRE at the school, said: "Harry Bibring was a huge part of life at the school and we were honoured that he visited our year nine students every year for ten years. "Following his passing last year, it felt entirely fitting to dedicate our senior school prize for PRE to the memory of Harry, to ensure that his mark on the school and our students continues for many years to come.

Mr Bibring's son Michael will continue his father's legacy by visiting Watford Grammar School for Boys at the end of January during Holocaust Memorial Week.
