We need to look back to what happened in Hungary during WWII in 1944 and the situation before the dejewification to the death camps. Hungary had been a relatively safe place for Jews. Certain Jews collaborated with Eichmann and other Nazis in order to save themselves. Hungary turned the Jews over. In my book We Never Lost Hope: A Holocaust Memoir and Love Story, I mention that my grandfather, who perished in Auschwitz, was a follower of the Rebbe Yoylash (Joel Teitlebaum) in Satu-Mare. The rabbi was saved by Rudolf Kastner of the Jewish Committee and their collaboration with Eichmann which saved certain rich Jews. My grandfather didn't have the money to save our family.
*My cousin, Greta Meyer 13, was murdered in Auschwitz.
