BBC Magazine–Kurt Hahn: The man who taught Philip to think
“There is more in you than you think” was the motto Kurt Hahn used during his long and active life. A German Jew who opposed and fled the Nazis and mentored the Duke of Edinburgh, his influence on education is all around, even if his name is not. Hahn was instrumental in setting up the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme, which has introduced millions of 14 to 24-year-olds to outdoor adventure and community service.
