Henry Wuga was born in 1924 in Nuremberg to a Jewish mother and non-Jewish father in the catering trade. He was educated at the Realschule, then at all Jewish school in F?rth. He was sent on the Kindertransport in 1939 to Glasgow and was looked after by the local Jewish community. He was charged with ‘corresponding with the enemy’ in 1940 and interned on Isle of Man, though below age. He returned to Glasgow and set up successful catering business. He experienced no prejudice in Scotland, which he describes as very inclusive, though shocked by Catholic/Protestant divide. He was awarded an MBE for work with limbless ex-servicemen. He married a Kindertransportee and they have two children.
