Liz Kessler is joined via video by her dad Harry Kessler to reveal the extraordinary true story behind her poignant book When the World Was Ours. Inspired by the true story of Harry’s escape from Nazi-occupied Europe, it’s an extraordinary novel which shows how the bonds of love, family and friendship allow glimmers of hope to flourish, even in the most hopeless of times. 

Liz tells how she managed to turn her dad’s story into fiction, drawing on interviews with Harry, and photographs from her research trip across five countries in Central Europe.
