Holocaust survivor parents

January 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Barnet Libraries presents: An online evening with Francis Morton discussing the story of his Holocaust survivor parents George and Renée.

Francis’s parents lived in Czechoslovakia before World War 2 but came to England as Jewish refugees. His mother came to England in 1938 on a domestic service visa to undertake housework and childcare for a family in Cambridge, while his father escaped from Czechoslovakia in 1940, illegally entering Palestine and then being interned on Mauritius by the British, before coming to the UK in 1942 as an RAF volunteer.

Francis uncovered their stories after finding some 500 letters written by family and friends during this period, and his talk also covers the fate of those family members unable to escape from occupied Europe.
