David Peterson

Born David Pietrkowski on 17th October 1927, David lost all his family in the ghettos and concentration camps in Poland. When he was liberated and alone in the world at the age of seventeen he came alone to England to begin a new life.

These family photos will always remind me that out of the ashes of Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen David created a new family, a second and third generation who would remember these atrocities. These are living proof that good will overcome evil.
