Did You Know?

The inspiration behind the Duke of Edinburgh's Award was Kurt Hahn, who founded and directed Gordonstoun school, where the Duke of Edinburgh spent some of his formative years, in the 1930s. Hahn had previously run a school in Germany, but was arrested in 1933 due to a critical pamphlet he had written about the new Nazi government, and because he was Jewish. He became a British citizen in 1938.
