The Saturday series of lectures hosted at Il-Ħaġar museum, St George’s Square, Victoria, featured former Sunday Times of Malta editor Laurence Grech (pictured) explaining “Why I was born”.

Mr Grech quipped that he was born “thanks to the war”. He was, in fact, born in the post-war ‘baby boom’ in 1948 to a school headmaster from Għajnsielem and a teacher from Valletta 17 years his junior, both of whom had their lives deeply traumatised by the war.

After a brief introduction about the part played by Malta in the war, Mr Grech recounted the tragic circumstances which brought his parents together and the incredible story both families lived to tell.
