David Lux 3

DAVE LUX was born Isidore Pinkasovich on April 12, 1933 in the small village of Negrovic in Czecho-Slovakia. In 1939 fascist storm began to attack Jewish homes and businesses. Dave’s home was broken into and looted. David and his brother were taken to Prague and they entered England. The train, along with seven other trains, which took Dave and 669 children to safety in England was organized by a young Nicholas Winton who single-handedly established an organization to aid children from Jewish families at risk from the Nazis. He set up his office at a dining room table in his hotel in Wenceslas Square.
