An Unlikely Friendship: Homelands with Chitra Ramaswamy and Special Guest

Friday 17 February, 2023

What does it mean to belong? What can friendship mean to us?
Journalist Chitra Ramaswamy met Henry Wuga over a decade ago when writing a story on his life, and how he fled from Nazi Germany in 1939. Beyond that first article, what followed is a yearslong friendship that is captured so neatly and immersively in Homelands – a story of migration, antisemitism, racism, family, belonging, resilience and – most of all – heart.
Join Chitra at Paisley Book Festival as she is joined by Nicola Sturgeon to dive into her friendship with Henry, why relationships such as these are so impactful, what we can learn from those around us, and why we treasure these connections so.
