About the contributor

Peter Hart
User ID: U2434219

My name is Peter Hart. I have been living in London, together with my wife Lili, for 60 years.

I was born and educated in Berlin, but left Hitler's Germany for Paris, in 1933 at the age of 18, a refugee from Nazi oppression. I was later following a career in the Hotel Industry in France and Italy.

When war broke out in September 1939, I was interned by the French as Enemy Alien, only to be handed over to the Germans after the invasion of France in May 1940.
My wartime story starts in France, leads me to Spain and finally in 1943 to London, via Gibraltar, where I joined H.M's Forces. The story covers the years 1939 to 1947.
