Avram Grant's family and the Holocaust

The Jewish Chronicle has an interview with the Chelsea manager, who has been rather an anonymous figure until now.

The newspaper begins by describing the fate of Grant's family during the Second World War and says that he:

knew nothing of their fate until one night when he was only 15.

He heard his father screaming in his sleep and rushed into his room to find that he was having a bad dream.

His father explained he had been dreaming he was back in the Russian forest in which he had been forced to dig graves for his parents and five brothers and sisters as each, in turn, died of cold or starvation. Only he and one brother survived.
