Private education was a major ‘industry’ in Bexhill for half a century before WWII. Scores of schools of all sizes opened to pupils during those years. But none were stranger than the town’s finishing school for daughters of the Nazi elite – the Augusta Victoria College in Dorset Road, Bexhill-on-Sea.
Bexhill Museum curator Julian Porter tells the stranger-than-fiction story of the College, its aristocratic students and Nazi lady owner, and how they came to inspire museum patron Eddie Izzard‘s new film Six Minutes to Midnight.
