Yellow Star Houses in Budapest #hungary

sankosy5@...
 

Dear H-SIGgers -

Can anyone please advise me as to what happened to the Jews living in Yellow Star houses in Budapest? It's too long a story to go into here, but my father was born in Budapest in 1941 and raised in his Christian family. He had no idea until I discovered >from research about 25 years ago that his mother and her parents were Jews who had converted - like so many - in 1923. It was a miracle that they survived, although we don't know how. My father, his sisters, his Christian father and Jewish-to-Catholic mother lived in their own home in Budapest during the war and carried on as regular Hungarians. I never knew how my greatgrandparents survived, and until she died my grandmother refused to acknowledge or discuss my discovery.

To my absolute shock, I just found this document >from the Hungaricana site. Forgive the inclusion of a link, but I couldn't get it on to Viewmate. This is a Flat Data Sheet >from 1944 identifying my grandfather (Rezso GABOR) as a Jew living in a designated Yellow Star House on Saru utca. My Hungarian isn't great, but that much I understand.


https://tinyurl.com/y9pq2hw4

My question is... then what happened? These weren't really safe houses, were they? My greatgrandparents were not sent away, but somehow remained in Budapest and eventually came to Canada in the early 1960's. Were some Yellow Star residents removed? Meant for deportation, Budapest ghetto, or G-d forbid the Danube? Were all Yellow Star residents saved, or were my greatgrandparents extremely blessed and lucky that their house was spared? I realize that I may never know for sure, but if anyone can put in context for me what generally happened to the Yellow Star residents, I would be most grateful. I can't begin to explain how emotional and overwhelmed I am to have finally tracked down some sort of record of my greatgrandparents >from the war.

I don't know if this is of general interest, or if it is best to respond to me privately.

Many thanks.

I stand corrected: I have been informed that this is not a Yellow Star house, but
rather, Jews who are required to wear the Yellow Star are not permitted to live
here. Now it becomes even more of a mystery.......

plan to attend!

The lecture will be given by Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett. The title is
"Meet the Family: A Journey of a Thousand Years at POLIN Museum: The

serve as Chief Curator of the core exhibition at POLIN Museum of the
History of Polish Jews? This thousand-year history is a story of families
and descendants may well find their ancestors in the exhibition: Piotr
Wislicki's grandfather was an MP in the Polish Sejm during the interwar
years; Sylvain Cappell's great grandfather Rabbi Dov Berush Meisels
supported struggles for Polish independence during the 19th century;
Elizabeth Rynecki is documenting the paintings of her great grandfather
Moshe Rynecki; Gary Breitbart is dedicated to the legacy of his great
granduncle, the Jewish strongman Zishe Breitbart; and David Mazower
treasures the literary legacy of his controversial grandfather Sholem
Asch.

This talk will offer a behind-the-scenes tour of POLIN Museum's core
exhibition >from a family history perspective.

Speaker: Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett
Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett is Chief Curator of the core exhibition at
POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews. She is University Professor
Emerita and Professor of Performance Studies Emerita at New York
University. Her books include Destination Culture: Tourism, Museums, and
Heritage; Image before My Eyes: A Photographic History of Jewish Life in
Poland, 1864-1939 (with Lucjan Dobroszycki); and They Called Me Mayer
July: Painted Memories of a Jewish Childhood in Poland Before the
Holocaust, which she coauthored with her father, Mayer Kirshenblatt. She
was born in Canada during the Second World War to Jewish immigrants
from Poland.
We look forward to seeing you at this special program!
