Join Idea Stores on Zoom for a chat with Holocaust survivor Ivan Shaw

Iwas born Ivan Buchwald in February 1939 in Novi Sad, in former Yugoslavia (now Serbia).  In May 1944 the Germans began rounding up Jews and deportations began.  He was taken away by the Gestapo to a prison cell where he stayed overnight, alone at just 5 years old. From here, he was taken by lorry to a transit camp where he was found by friends and family also there, and they looked after him. Ivan’s aunt managed to snatch him from a camp line and hid him in a nearby forest.before taking him home and hiding him there.
