Harold Pinter, the 2005 Nobel Laureate for Literature, was born October 10, 1930, in London's working-class Hackney district to Hyman and Frances Pinter, Eastern European Jews who had immigrated to the United Kingdom from Portugal. Hyman, known as "Jack", was a tailor specializing in women's clothing and Frances was a homemaker. The Pinters, whose families hailed from Odessa and Poland in the Russian Empire, were part of a wave of Jewish emigration to the UK at the turn of the last century. It was a community that valued learning and culture. The Pinter family was close, and young Harold was shocked when, at the occurrence of World War II, he was evacuated from London to Cornwall with other London children for a year to avoid becoming victims of German aerial bombing.
