Born Gerhard Fabian in Stuttgart, Germany on 11th January 1934, Garry’s early years of life were spent travelling between countries to avoid persecution by the Nazis. In 1935 his family moved to Bodenback, Czechoslovakia, to avoid the ramifications of the Nuremberg Laws. With news of Germany’s annexation of Czechoslovakia, Garry and his mother travelled to Trenchin in Slovakia, then to Brno in Moravia to meet his father, then finally travelled to Prague by the end of 1938. Life in Prague was difficult for his family and they were forced to live under false documents. A steady income was generated by Garry’s father’s ‘illegal’ employment as a chauffeur, and the sale of his mother’s hand-made items. During this time, Garry did not attend school but received private tuition. Life was difficult, however worse was to come.
