My brother Gustav was one of the messengers of Raoul Wallenberg Resque operation. His name is listed on the first page of the employes of the team of Raoul Wallenberg. In 1944 my brother was 15 years of age.

We survied thanks to his assigment as family member of the Swedish Legation. We were in the building Jokai street nr. 1. which was raided in the night of the 7th of January, 1945. Children with mothers was thrown next day from the arrow cross headquarter to the general getto. All others were killed. We are thanking Raoul Wallenberg who most probably negotiated with the arrow cross to let the children with mothers to survive from to betaken to the shore of the Danube.
In Jenö Lévai book there is a whole chapter of the horrors of the Jokai Street building.
