A holocaust survivor has received an honorary doctorate from University Campus Suffolk.
Frank Bright regularly talks to students at the university and schoolchildren in the area about his experiences in Nazi concentration and slave labour camps.
And today the 84-year-old retired civil engineer is being rewarded for his work with the honorary award.
Speaking before the ceremony Mr Bright said: “It is a bit of appreciation for what I have been doing, a little bit extra.
“It’s very nice to receive recognition. It’s always nice for people to recognise what you do.

“I’m a living specimen (of the holocaust), so if people can hear about it from the horse’s mouth you get much more attention and it’s retained.
“It’s a good day, it’s nice which adds to the atmosphere and I’m quite looking forward to it.
