A letter from Mrs. Borschan, the widow of Sandor Borschan, from Baja Internment Camp on May 26, 1944, to the Police Headquarters of Baja, Hungary. Mrs. Borschan requested release from internment, for herself and her relatives, since they are full-fledged Hungarian citizens. She points out that the male members of her family either died or are currently serving in the Labor Battalions attached to the Hungarian Army and therefore she asks the authorities to grant her special consideration. Two days later, on May 28, 1944, Mrs. Boschan was deported from Hungary, on the transport to Auschwitz. There, she was exterminated by the Germans.

Gyorgy Lehel's Budapest Lawyers' Chamber membership card from March 5, 1936. The card shows his date of acceptance to the bar: December 31, 1919. The photo clearly shows the self-confidence and social status of Mr. Lehel.

Gyorgy Lehel's Budapest Lawyers' Chamber membership card from January 1940. In these four tumultuous years, the anti-Jewish Laws were passed and WWII broke out. Gyorgy Lehel's visage seems to reflect the worries and burdens of the Jews of Hungary.

The photos of Gyorgy Lehel are courtesy of the Memorial Museum of Hungarian speaking jewry of Sefad, Israel.

The wedding of Miklos Halasz and Erzsébet Tenke. She was Catholic and he converted to Christianity. He even built a church on his property. But the law regarded him as a Jew and he was drafted to a forced labor battalion where he died.
