Re: MARKUS Dezso, Hadnagy #hungary


i believe that this book was mentioned a few=20
times in the jewishgen and h-sig list, as far=20
back as 2000. it was published in 1940,=20
presumably as a "reminder" of the jewish=20
community's patriotism.

there is a mention of a copy at yad vashem.

i'm not aware of any source that might have it=20
available online (, which has the=20
"magyar zsido lexikon", would be my first=20
suspect, but ic ouldn't find it there). i think=20
it might be an interesting project to either scan=20
it or even just to index it, and maybe jewishgen=20
could be persuaded to host it. (copyrights=20
