In her suburban London row house, Margit Goodman, 94, sits wrapped in blankets in her favorite recliner.
She was a girl of 17 when she first came to Britain, escaping from her native Prague just before the Germans invaded. She remembers the exact date: June 5, 1939.
"When I left, [Czechoslovakia] was still a free country," she recalls. "But we soon became occupied by the Germans."
