Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew born in 1924 in Berlin, whose mother died when he was seven years old. Behrendt lived with his father, and part of time in orphanages. In 1938 he had to leave public school, and began to study in a Jewish school. In June 1938 Behrendt's father was arrested and deported to Buchenwald. In December 1938, shortly after the "Kristallnacht" pogrom, Behrendt left for England on a Kindertransport. His father was released from Buchenwald, and emigrated to Shanghai before the outbreak of World War II. In 1942 Behrendt joined the British army in order to fight against Hitler. His brother, Heinz, was deported to the Minsk ghetto and later to Bergen-Belsen; he emigrated to Palestine after the war. Gideon Behrendt himself emigrated to Palestine in 1947.
