"Young People Speak: Surviving the Holocaust in Hungary" #hungary #holocaust

Susan J. Gordon

I found this anthology in my local library, read it and decided to buy a copy too. Published in 1993 by Franklin Watts, it's a collection of stories written by adults who were child survivors of the Holocaust, but it is well worth reading by adults as well as teenagers. To my surprise, I found references to my second cousin, Eva, who was known as "Eva the Swede," in Budapest. Eva took great risks to save others before and after she and her sister were given (some) protection by the Swedish Embassy, which granted them an apartment just outside of the Jewish Ghetto, where they cared for Jewish children and also hid Jews.
