Re: Buying false papers

Sue Martin

My aunt had false papers in Budapest, but she had to hide anyway.  I'm not sure of the chronology; it could be that she got the papers afterward.  She did magyarize her surname, and left Hungary after the war as a displaced person, to live in Paris with her sister for a decade before moving to the US.  My memory of what she said is that she got the papers from a non-Jewish friend.  I don't recall her ever talking about buying them, and I don't think she would have had the wherewithal to do so.
