Johannes Ullmann, son of Viktor Ullmann, escaped Nazi Germany via the Kindertransport, only to spend much of his life in an English mental hospital, being treated with a cocktail of drugs including the controversial antipsychotic drug Clozapine.

Clozapine is only now gaining public attention due to the severity of its side effects – see for instance this article in the Guardian.

Johannes was prescribed Clozapine from his days as a patient in Horton Hospital, Epsom Surrey (1952-1996) and while resident at Hopkinson House (1996-2008), and until his death on the 6th August 2010 in a Surrey nursing home.
