Forced labor: weapon factory in Budakalasz #hungary

Margarita Lacko <mishpologia@...>
 

Dear H-siggers,

Related to my previous post (View Mate: Forced Labor camp in Turia Remete),
my uncle is also looking for survivors of the forced labor camp in
Budakalasz.

Budakalasz was a weapon factory near Budapest. HARBINGER was the officer in
charge between 1943-45. According to my uncle, this unit had only
professional people and skilled workers, working on removing rust on tools
used by the Hungarian and German army.

We are searching for survivors or anyone that might have had relatives
working in this factory, or that can provide information about this camp.

Also, can someone inform me what kind of document(s) a person might have
had at that time?

Thank you,
Margarita

i think this is an interesting question, and i hope others in the group will add their thoughts/views.

between 1910 and 1920 there was world war 1, and some borders shifted, although i don't think a lot of territory changed hands >from hungary to austria, although i could be wrong. as far as i know, most of the border changes occurred around the perimeters, such as slovakia or transylvania,which were transferred to neighbouring countries like czechoslovakia or romania.

i think a more interesting possibility is that a social change took place, in as much as the immigrants may have felt that "austria" was more prestigious than "hungary" as a place of origin. a more mundane explanation might be that different census takers recorded "austro-hungary" in terms that they understood (americans not being noted for their knowledge of world geography).

in any event, "austro-hungary" once extended over a large area >from galicia in the north to the balkans in the south.

Dear H-siggers,

As a survivor, my uncle submitted a claim to one of the insurance
companies. Now they are asking for proof.

The only proof he seems to have is a photo which I have posted on View

or use the direct link

You will see a group of men >from the Hungarian Forced Labor camp
(munkaszolgalat) in Turia Remete (Karpatorus, Ukraine), 1942-1943. I would
like to get in touch with survivors or descendants, or anyone that can
provide information about this camp.

Please reply privately at < mishpologia@uzidog.com >

Thanks in advance,

Re: McKeesport, Pennsylvania Hungarian Jewish Community #hungary

My maternal great grandparents, Wolf and Elizabeth ROSENFELD lived in
McKeesport >from the 1890's until their death and are buried in the
Gemilis Chesed Cemetery in Versailles, PA. I am reasonably sure that
this was the cemetery >from the Orthodox Schul. I have not been able
to identify exactly where they were born but my grandmother said
Budapest!!. All were fluent in Hungarian.

A paternal uncle, Alex HARTSTEIN married Mollie LICHTENSTEIN whose
parents are buried in the Elrod Cemetery also in Versailles.

Both of these families were orthodox, Hungarian and >from McKeesport,
PA. These cemeteries may be one and the same. I visited the
Gemillis Chesed about 6 years ago and at the time only looked for and
photographed ROSENFELD family member plots.

This is a grey area for me so if you have further insight that would
be appreciated.
