Holocaust survivor thanks QRC

A Jew­ish man who fled with his fam­i­ly to T&T from the Nazi holo­caust re­turned to his for­mer al­ma mater, Queen’s Roy­al Col­lege, to give thanks for the school’s im­pact on his life.

Dr Pe­ter La­band, 92, a den­tal sur­geon who now lives in the Unit­ed States, was full of praise for his QRC as he walked across the school’s court­yard ac­com­pa­nied by mem­bers of the Queen’s Roy­al Col­lege Old Boys’ As­so­ci­a­tion.

“It start­ed right here. With­out this, it would not have been pos­si­ble. In a way, I came to say thank you,” he said.
