Product description

Review

'As the season approaches for people to choose their books of the year, I would certainly put in my top five a just-published autobiography by former Fleet Street journalist John Izbicki, whom I, also a one time education journalist, knew when he covered education for The Daily Telegraph. It is a fascinating history, not just of newspapers, but of his personal life, fleeing Nazi Germany, as a child in the 1930s.' --David Lister, The Independent.

'Moving and disturbing at times, this book reflects major historical events from the rise of the Nazis in his formative years to profiling and commenting on more contemporary events. The author unpicks his own life with clarity, dignity and rare insight that put experiences into perspective. This wonderful and outstanding true story will live with me for some time. A fantastic, highly recommended read.' --Len Parkyn, The Teacher, journal of the National Association of Teachers

'John Izbicki's autobiography, Life Between the Lines, opens with his memories of running down the street as a five-year-old, exuberantly shouting: 'I am a Jew!'. As this was in Hitler's Berlin, it gave his parents understandable cause for anxiety. Izbicki later witnessed Kristallnacht from inside his parents' shop, and recalls literally running to the station with them in September 1939, hours after air transport out of Germany to England had been halted. But they managed to make it and he recounts a colourful career in which, demobbed, he progressed from Paris correspondent to Daily Telegraph education editor and back again. While there is humour in the book, there is also much grim and poignant detail. With most of his family having perished, he clearly will never be reconciled with Germany.' --Anthea Gerrie, The Jewish Chronicle

About the Author

John Izbicki's professional and personal relationships with ministers and prime ministers, including Harold Wilson, Margaret Thatcher, Keith Joseph and Neil Kinnock, make fascinating reading but John Izbicki has never forgotten his childhood under fascism, nor the tragic fate that befell the many close relatives left behind in Nazi Germany.
