In 1943 he had been deported to Theresienstadt together with his mother, who in that same year died of hunger and illness. One year previously his father had been shot in Prague by the German occupiers.
The sickly boy was moved from refugee camp to refugee camp in Switzerland after which he returned to Prague where some surviving relatives were living. There he grew up, studied and married before emigrating to Germany with his wife and children just before the crushing of the Prague Spring in 1968.
