My Story: John Izbicki, from Refugee to Telegraph Editor

Fri 16 May 2014

Time: 1pm - 2pm

The Wiener Library is delighted to welcome John Izbicki as part of our ‘My Story’ series of personal histories. Born in 1930, John remembers the horrors of Kristallnacht aged 8 when his father’s shop was destroyed and his family's escape to Britain in late 1939. John has written a powerful memoir about his experiences which you can read more about in this Guardian review. Hear more of John’s story and take part in a question and answer session after the talk.

Tea, coffee and biscuits provided.
