My sister and I left Hungary, spent some time in Vienna, before arriving in Deggendorf
, a Displaced person's (DP) Camp
near Munich in Bavaria. There were all these welfare organizations, UNRRA
(United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration), the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee
and others who started to come around to see us and organize us. They started to set up camps and the survivors were registered and fed, given clothing, whatever. We spent a year and a half in the DP camp, still looking for people we had known. I wanted to emigrate to Israel, but couldn't because of the British blockade
at the time. My sister, on the other hand, fell in love with someone and moved back to Hungary with him. Again, I traveled around looking for a ship that could take me to Israel.
