Eugen Schultzen
My father Eugène Watson Rodger (b. 1910) was named after Eugen Schultzen, a German Jewish immigrant to Glasgow, who was a friend of his mother's family, the Assafreys. The 1901 census shows Eugen Schultzen living in a boarding house at 7 Abbotsford Place in the Gorbals, and working as a stockbroker's clerk. Subsequently he made a lot of money and was well-known for befriending young men, to whom he was known as Uncle Eugen. I believe he lived in London during the 1930's. When the Second World War broke out, he rashly decided to return to Germany, although he had been naturalized in the early 1900's. As far as I know, he was never seen or heard of again. Can anyone help to fill in the details of this story? Or even explain Uncle Eugen's decision to return to Germany?
