Rudi was born in May 1926, in Germany. As a young boy growing up in Berlin, he experienced a number of antisemitc incidents. He was at home when the Gestapo forced their way into his house and arrested his parents. They were later released and after much perseverance, managed to obtain British entry visas. He travelled to England on a German cruise liner alongside his parents and sister. He settled in Bradford, where he followed in his father’s footsteps and became a dentist. Rudi’s love of music stems from the teacher he had as a young boy in Berlin and it has played an important part throughout his life.
