On Monday 15 March at 8pm, Jilly Allenby will talk about her fascinating grandfather, the German-born Johannes Ilmari Auerbach (1899-1950). Born into an artistic and intellectual Jewish family in Silesia, he studied at the Bauhaus in Weimar in 1921. Auerbach subsequently worked as a sculptor in Paris, before returning to Germany in 1932. Imprisoned in 1933–35, he managed to escape to England in 1938 where he changed his name to John Ivor Allenby.
