Very lucky, says 92-year-old Sheffield man

Posted on December 24, 2020

The 92-year-old Bolsterstone man was born in 1928 into a family of wealthy German Jewish horse breeders. Then, as the continent of Europe hurtled towards the horrors of World War Two, he survived Kristallnacht to escape Germany on the Kindertransport, arriving in Sheffield in 1939. Later he was evacuated to a Nottinghamshire farm where he learned English, eventually meeting an English girl and living happily ever after in a South Yorkshire ‘log cabin’ for the next 70 years.
