Zoologist Dr Suzanne L. Ullmann, who was born of Jewish parents in Budapest in 1935, lectured for many years at the University of Glasgow.
She died in April last year and left behind a remarkable account of surviving the Nazi occupation.
Her father, a jeweller, had gone to London in the hope of establishing a business and her mother, who went to visit him, was unable to get back to Hungary when war broke out.Suzanne and her twin brothers were stranded in Budapest with their grandmothers.
Suzanne contributed her story of coming to Scotland to escape Nazi persecution to the “Gathering the Voices Exhibition” which features photos and extracts from testimonies by men and women who sought refuge in Scotland to escape the racism of Nazi-dominated Europe.
