of a Federalist
When Ernest Wistrich caught the last train from Poland through Germany to Britain just before the Nazi invasion in 1939, he was a 16-year-old young man with no idea of when he would see his family again. Ernest could not have imagined then that he would one day become “The man in the background who masterminded the pro-European campaign”.
Ernest’s reflections on his life and his involvement in municipal, national and international politics are told with humour and warmth, and contain fascinating insights into Britain’s political history from the 1950s onwards. Given the current debate raging about Britain’s role in Europe, this book is timely and important.
