Further Information

This photograph forms part of the Bernard Grunberg Collection. The picture shows Bernard driving a tractor on an estate in Oxfordshire, England in 1939. Bernard Grunberg was born in 1923 in Lingen, Germany. He lived with his parents and sister. As a boy Bernard experienced anti-Semitic bullying following the rise of Nazism which forced him to leave school. Bernard was studying woodwork at a Jewish college in Berlin when the woodwork shop was destroyed by fire prior to the November Pogrom. When he was 15 years old Bernard was sent to England on the Kindertransport to escape the increasing danger from the Nazi regime and persecution of Jewish people. After arriving Bernard spent time in arriving children's camps before becoming a farm hand. Bernard later married and was a prominent speaker at the NHCM. Bernard's father, mother, and sister were murdered in the Holocaust.
