Honouring a hero
"I was born in 1931 in Czechoslovakia in a typical liberal Jewish family and lived both in Czechoslovakia and Germany. All was well until the mid-thirties when the Nazi anti-Semitic programme was beginning to bite. I came to England in 1939 with the Kindertransport through the work of Nicholas Winton and was fostered into an English family. My parents and most of my family died in Auschwitz and other camps. I speak regularly at The Holocaust Centre Beth Shalom in Nottinghamshire, and have spoken for the Aegis Trust on their Equality and Diversity programme. I also speak in schools for the Holocaust Education Trust and with other agencies. I am married to Elizabeth and we have three children and seven grandchildren."
