Ivan Solomons was born in 1920’s Britain. He grew up in Hackney with three brothers and two sisters. His parents, Jewish immigrants, ran a shoe making business. He served in World War II along with his three brothers. All four brothers made it home.
We had the privilege of meeting Ivan at his home in West London and speaking to him about his life, his memories of the war, and what it was like to survive, come home and build a life, a ‘very lucky life’- in his words.
