Raoul Wallenberg , 
l’ange de Budapest, histoire d’Erwin Koranyi

“Je suis né à Budapest en 1924. J’ai donc 20 ans lors des événements… J’ai terminé mes études secondaires et m’apprête à entreprendre mes études en médecine. Mais, étant juif, je ne peux aller à l’université. Les Allemands occupent le pays à partir de mars 1944. Budapest compte une très grande communauté juive. Nous sommes tous déplacés vers des maisons portant la grande étoile jaune. Et je suis mobilisé pour les camps de travail. Nous devons porter l’étoile jaune, respecter le couvre-feu, ne pas circuler dans certains parcs et magasins, etc. Moi je travaille au quartier général de Eichmann ! ! !Read More »Raoul Wallenberg ,

Histoire de Maria Gomory

“ Je suis née à Budapest en 1922 de parents Juifs non pratiquant. J’ai même été converti au catholicisme au début des années ‘40 pour échapper éventuellement à la montée du nazisme et de l’antisémitisme.

Jeune, je suis curieuse et désire voyager. Je rêve de vivre un jour aux États-Unis; comme l’Institut Curie de Paris donne une formation en chimie qui garantit un emploi aux USA, je convaincs mes parents d’aller y étudier. C’est pourquoi en 1938 et 1939, je me retrouve en pension à Paris pour y poursuivre des cours à la Sorbonne. Je suivrai finalement des cours d’économie.Read More »Histoire de Maria Gomory
