A man stripped and beat a boy “black and blue” in an assault at a children’s home, an inquiry has heard.
A witness at the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry said the man “battered hell” out of him at Nazareth House in Aberdeen (pictured) in the 1960s when he was 11 years old.
He told the inquiry: “I thought my time was up.”
The witness said the nuns who ran the home would have been aware of the incident but did not come to see how he was.
