Posted on May 10, 2022

A HOLOCAUST survivor returned to the train station where he first arrived in Scotland after escaping Nazi Germany to share his story with secondary school pupils.

Henry Wuga, 98, joined Poppyscotland and Gathering the Voices to help launch new lessons for Scottish schools, based on his story and that of other young refugees during the Second World War.

Wuga escaped Nazi Germany in 1939, aged just 15, leaving his parents behind in Nuremberg, and came to Glasgow on the Kindertransport.
