VE Day anniversary celebration for Jantje, 93, survivor of Nazi occupation

A care home near Ipswich put on a VE Day anniversary celebration in honour of a resident who experienced the horrors of Nazi occupation. 

Jantje Huggins lives at Spring Lodge care home in Woolverstone, which had a special afternoon tea on Friday, May 7, to mark the eve of this year's 76th anniversary on May 8.

The 93-year-old grew up in the Netherlands, and met husband, Stan, among the liberating Army - which she described as "the one good thing from this awful time."

It is now 75 years since she married the Royal Artillery despatch rider and started a new life in England.
