Remembrance Day services mark the two-minute silence across Tower Hamlets

One of the many veterans at the service was 99-year-old Augustus Bialick, who was born in Whitechapel in 1914 and took part in the invasion of Sicily in 1943. Mr Bialick, the son of a Polish Jew who also served in the British army, said: “I’m here to pay my respects to the men from the Merchant Navy who died in such a terrible way.”

Local lad Gus Bialick was also in the throng. His father Isaac had escaped persecution in Poland at the turn of the century, paying people-traffickers for a passage to America but landing, penniless, in London. Here, he found sanctuary and settled, making a family and establishing his tailoring business.
Gus, born in 1914, had experienced the worst the Depression could inflict on poor families and was watching events in Europe with alarm. "I was afraid for the older generation because we never knew what the future held for us. Fascism was growing in great strength and it was a difficult period. The fact that we were young Jews made us drift towards the Communists, for the simple reason that they were the ones who were fighting Fascism the hardest.'' The BUF did not pass in Whitechapel but the fight against Fascism had barely begun.
