The son of a London Jewish family, Harry Levy joined the RAF in 1940, at the age of 18. He was eventually the sole survivor of an airplane shot down over German-occupied Belgium. Aided by Belgian patriots, he evaded the Germans for a short time, but was subsequently arrested in Brussels wearing civilian clothes. Levy spent ten weeks in solitary confinement, expecting to be shot as a spy. He was saved by the intervention of a Luftwaffe officer, aided by the prison governor. Fifty years later, Harry Levy tells the story of captivity, deliverance and a rare act of kindness in the midst of intolerance in vivid, but unsentimental, detail.
