Hello & Welcome to Iby Knill’s website!

Why do I need a website? A good question, but then all questions are good, it is the answers that can be bad. I am doing something I never thought of doing – I am writing about my life – amongst other things. But you really need to go to My Blog to find out more …You will find updates, news and views there.

But some facts first;

I was born in Czechoslovakia in 1923, escaped to Hungary in 1942, imprisoned and sent to Auschwitz Birkenau 1944,I was liberated on Easter Sunday, 1st April 1945 and I came to the UK in 1947.

Since then I have had several careers, got a BA in 1973, an MA in 2002 (aged 79), Honorary Doctorate from Huddersfield University in 2016, Honorary Fellowship from Leeds Trinity University in 2017 and a BEM in the Queen’s Honors list in 2017.

The website has been created to spread my story around the world. So, if you are interested in reading about me  visit the My Story page. Here there is also a link to the film [ 18 minutes] .

For any events where I am talking, navigate over to the Events page. Past events are given in the Archived Events page.

If there is anything that you would like to ask about my story or the upcoming events, take a look at the FAQ page. If you can’t find the answer to your question, please email me at: iknill01@gmail.com

If you would like to buy my books, look at the book order page. There you can order ‘The Women Without a Number’  and the sequel: “The Woman with Nine Lives”. Booksellers also stock the books, as does Amazon, where there is even an e-book! There is also a Slovakian translation, with other translations in the offing…

Thank you for reading this far – I hope you enjoy the books – if that’s the right word – appreciate would be a better word!
