Dr Huppert, Jewish-Austrian doctor at Craig-y-nos
Dr. Huppert, a Jewish- Austrian woman doctor, terrified the children at Craig-y-nos. She had gold teeth, smelt of tobacco and looked like a man. If she discovered children had not eaten their food she would order it to be sent back to them.
She was the one who ordered the punishment anything from being put back to strict bed rest for a week for getting out of bed to retrieve a piece of paper during Silent Hour to having beds pulled out into the corridor for crying.
Yet on one occasion she took a group of little girls rowing on the lake.
She also carried out regular blood tests on the young women. The reason for these tests have still to be found.
