Our father, Peter Spiro, who has died aged 79, was a child Holocaust survivor. Born in Vienna, he came to Britain alone as an eight-year-old, on the kindertransport trains from Nazi-occupied Austria. Peter was later reunited with his father, a journalist, writer and radical, and then with his beloved mother. Peter was always grateful and loyal to the Britain that welcomed him and his family.
