Hungary SIG #Hungary RE: Bor Labor Camp #hungary


A Hungarian jurist/sociologist, Tamas Csapody, has reccently published a
book, Bori munkaszolgálatosok, about the forced labourers at Bor. I was told
by a friend, who is a survivor of Bor that the book is very well researched
(actually he has supplied some of the details to the author). The book is,
of course, in Hungarian, but maybe you could get in touch with the author
through the Budapest Holocaust Center (+36-1) 455 33 33
Hope you will be lucky with your search,

This is the English summary of a monograph byTamás Csapody on the subject
(in Hungarian).

Bor was immortalized also by the poetry of one of its victims, Miklós
Radnóti. See:
