Abstract

In a career spanning five decades Rudolph Schaffer was one of Britain's foremost developmental psychologists. He was born in 1926 into a Jewish family in Berlin, where he experienced the growing obscenity of Nazism and anti-Semitism. His parents secured him a passage on the Kindertransport, and he escaped to England in May 1939. He never saw his parents again; his father died of pneumonia in Theresienstadt camp, and his mother was gassed in Auschwitz.
