In Pictures: An Englishman in Auschwitz
Captured by the Nazis

"I was a bookseller living in Rotterdam. Visiting London in 1938, I saw people queuing for gas masks. I hurried home to pick up my wife, Else. When I arrived, she was listening to Neville Chamberlain on the BBC saying there would be no war. So we stayed. In 1940 our son, Barney, was born and the Nazis overran us. I gave my passport to friends, so I would not be arrested. They burned it in fear."
