In 1940 our area became part of Hungary. It was at this time that we began noticing anti-Semitism
from Poland and Germany streamed into Hungary, telling local Jews what had happened to them. For us, there were quotas on high school attendance, beatings in the streets, and people were told not to buy from Jewish shops. Since I could no longer attend school, I began training as a furniture maker. I remember beginning to have the sensation of being hunted.
