Re: Suggestions for tracing Hungarian Shoah survivors? #hungary #holocaust

Arolsen Archives has what looks like matching records:

Ilona Herschkowits born Weiss, Ponyola August 30 1930. Married with a family unit of 3 (i.e. one child). Entered Austria in 1949 then to Israel.
Irene Klein born Weiss, Panyola December 2 1928, Married with a family unit of 3. Entered Austria May 1949 thence to Israel August 1949.

I strongly recommend reaching out to the Arolsen archives. They have skilled researchers. They might for example find a Herschkowits whose card serial number is adjacent, which in turn would give you the husband's first name and birth date. Or they may be able to dig deeper into archives that are not searchable yet.

Good luck!
