I am grateful to Peter Thompson, freelance journalist with the Surrey and Hants News for his recent review of Escaping Hitler, published in this popular newspaper last month. Peter was my first ever ‘Editor’ when he ran the Farnham Herald Newspaper back in the 1990s.  He gave me my first ‘columns’ including the ‘Meeting People’ interview column which proved so prophetic.  I am really pleased with this.  I have signed copies at home so if you would like one (UK only sadly) do please get in touch via my email at phyllida.scrivens@icloud.com.  The copies are £19.50 plus £4 postage and packing.  Sales going well, planning now for our presentations in Koblenz and Nickenich in May.  More exciting news to come….
