Rudi Leavor has led an extraordinary life. As a child, he experienced numerous antisemitic incidents in Berlin before being forced to flee the Gestapo alongside his parents and sister when he was just 11 years old.
Finding refuge in Bradford, Leavor went on to follow in his father’s footsteps and became a successful dentist. He guided the restoration of the city’s Grade II listed Reform Synagogue, and in 2017 was awarded the British Empire Medal in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for his extensive work in the local Jewish community and interfaith community relations.
During this eye-opening conversation, Leavor will share aspects of his remarkable life – all of which are featured in his new book, Berlin to Bradford – before answering audience questions.
