His Jewish parents escaped from the Warsaw Ghetto while his mother was pregnant with him during the Nazi occupation of Poland.
The couple survived only after being smuggled into a gardener’s building at the home of a contact they had made in the Polish underground.
Dr Feuerman was born in 1944 with what he described as “false so-called Aryan documents” to hide his Jewish identity.
His parents escaped before the Nazis demolished the ghetto, where at its height an estimated 400,000 Jews were trapped inside a 3.4 sq km (1.3 sq mile) area. Most were murdered at death camps or died of starvation or disease, among up to 3 million Polish Jews murdered by the Nazis.
