Subtitle A Memoir
By John Izbicki
Published by Umbria Press
ISBN 9780954127572

Izbicki has an exciting story to tell. Berlin-born, he lived through the horrors of Nazi persecution. Having escaped to England he describes being a refugee and leads the reader along the remarkable journey he travelled from school to university, through his adventurous time of national service and then onto journalism.

Author's Biography

John Izbicki’s professional and personal relationships with ministers and prime ministers, including Harold Wilson, Margaret Thatcher, Keith Joseph and Neil Kinnock, make fascinating reading – but John Izbicki has never forgotten his childhood under fascism, nor the tragic fate that befell the many close relatives left behind in Nazi Germany.


Price £12.99

I would certainly put this in my top five of the year. A fascinating history, not just of newspapers, but of his personal life. Source: David Lister, The Independent. 

This wonderful and outstanding true story will live with me for some time. A fantastic, highly recommended read. Source: Len Parkyn, The Teacher, journal of the National Association of Teachers. 

While there is humour, there is also much grim and poignant detail. With his family having perished, he clearly will never be reconciled with Germany. Source: Anthea Gerrie, The Jewish Chronicle 

A characteristically readable and entertaining autobiography. Quite fascinating and unusually frank account of his personal life. Altogether, a memoir to be savoured. Anthony Grenville, AJR (Association of Jewish Refugees) Journal
