If you want to read more detail about the deportation process from
Vienna to Budapest, at least as it happened in my family, I wrote some
of my father's family history a few years ago and posted it on a blog
I write. The deportation stories are at

If you read these 3 posts in isolation, what you need to know to
follow them is that Apu and Anyu are the Hungarian names for Father
and Mother, and that their three sons are Hans, Peter, and Tibor.
Peter was my father.

If you want to read the whole family history >from 1919 to 1949, you
can find the links at

The story starts on August 28, 2013.

Vienna to Budapest in 1938 - records? #austria-czech

tompa@...
 

Many Hungarian Jews were deported to Hungary soon after Austria's
Anschluss by Germany in March 1938. This was the case for my father
and his brother and parents in 1938. Being Hungarian, it wasn't a
matter of choosing where to flee: they weren't given a choice of where
to be deported. In the case of my father and his brother, they were
arrested, escorted on a train to the Hungarian border at Sopron by
police, and told to cross the border and never return.
