Thomas Geve Books & Biography
Thomas Geve was born in Germany in October 1929. As Nazi persecution intensified, the family faced danger and hardship and moved around often. Thomas’s father fled to England, schools for Jewish children closed, and Thomas became a cemetery worker in Berlin. Eventually, he and his mother were deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau in June 1943. Against all odds, Thomas survived 22 months of three concentration camps and was liberated in April 1945. He was never to see his mother again. After a period of recuperation in Switzerland, Thomas and his father were reunited in London, where he completed his studies and graduated as a building engineer. In 1950 Thomas settled in Israel, where he raised a family and now lives peacefully in retirement.
