From Berlin To England And Back
Peter Prager was born in Berlin and came to Britain via the kindertransports. In The English Teacher from Berlin, he gives a fascinating, vivid account of life in Berlin before, during and after the war, as experienced by German Jews. His account of life once he arrived in Britain is told with sensitivity and humour, and includes hilarious stories from his early teaching career. Later, he makes a poignant return to Germany as an exchange teacher and reunites with contemporaries from his former Gymnasium, some of whom give their own short accounts.
