Ruth Davis was born in Brno, Czechoslovakia in 1937. She came to England as a baby with her sister Helen. Her parents, Josef and Joy first came to London, then later arrived in Bradford. She now resides in the U.S in New York, having pursued a career as a journalist. Her foray into journalism began in the town of Batley, West Yorkshire, England, where her father ran a textile export business based in Victoria Warehouse at 13 Bradford Road. She began her journalistic career working for the local newspaper, The Batley News, later emigrating to America in the late 1990s.
Ruth wrote an article ‘The Brno to Bradford Connection’ which she presented at a conference several years ago, which this site hopes to reproduce soon.
