They escaped to Iran in 1942 and travelled to Britain in 1947. He studied at the University of London and then worked designing aircraft at Vickers Aerospace. He later moved into economic consultancy. He became an expert in the history of medieval Lithuania. His memoirs were published in 2010 as Crater's Edge.
