Dr Huppert - a controversial figure
This Austrian Jewish refugee doctor frightened children with her abrasive manner, strange appearance and gutteral heavily accented foreign voice.
Yet it was the arrival of Dr Huppert at Craig-y-nos that led to many children gettting up for the first time after years lying in plaster.
The consensus of opinion now is that she was a good doctor but her manner alarmed children.
