Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond was a speaker at what he termed an "extraordinary" HMD ceremony at Craigroyston Community High School, north Edinburgh.
Mr Salmond was among the 250 people who heard Rabbi Awraham Soetendorp tell the story of his remarkable escape from the Nazis. Then a baby, he was delivered in a suitcase to a German couple near Arnhem, in Holland. They risked their lives to shelter him and another Jewish child until the liberation in 1945.
