Thomas Geve was born in 1929 in Germany. From 1933 onwards, Thomas
and his family felt the full force of Nazi persecution. After years
of constant danger and hardship, he and his mother were arrested
and transported to Auschwitz-Birkenau in June 1943.Twenty-two
months later Thomas was liberated, and after a period of
recuperation, he was reunited with his father in London. After
completing his studies and graduating with an engineering degree,
Thomas moved to Israel in July 1950, raised a family and now lives
peacefully in retirement.
