We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our dear friend Bernard Grunberg.
Bernard escaped Nazi persecution by emigrating to England on the Kindertransport. He married in 1947, and worked as an agricultural engineer, labourer & handyman.
Seems even more important than ever to remember those who perished in this horrific #Genocide. #Hatecrime #NeverForget #Srebrenica https://t.co/4jcQ4AlpRL
