Ivor Wieder


Our father Ivor Wieder was born on April 6th 1931 in Barsna, Romania. In 1944 he was taken to Auschwitz and went on to Belsen until he was finally liberated in 1945, probably one of the youngest inmates to survive. He was brought to England in 1946 and started a new life, firstly in Gateshead Yeshiva for 2 years and then becoming a sewing machine mechanic before entering the luggage industry in 1952.

The square represents his love of learning, Klezmer music and his over 50 years working in the luggage industry.
