Unique friendship with man behind city’s biggest Jewish catering company

A book about 97-year-old Holocaust survivor Henry Wuga will be published next week.

Homelands The History of a Friendship tells the story of award-winning writer Chitra Ramaswamy’s unique friendship with Henry, who arrived in the UK with the Kindertransport aged 15, followed a few months later by his future wife, Ingrid.

They went on to found the biggest Jewish catering company in Glasgow and — later — travel the world sharing their story of flight, internment and survival.

Chitra was born in London, the daughter of Indian immigrants.

And despite their very different stories, she found a surprising amount in common with Henry.
