Peter Tarjan discusses Rescue Efforts and Resistance
in Nazi-occupied Budapest, 1944–1945
Nazi Germany invaded Hungary, its ally against the Soviets, on March 19, 1944. Dr. Peter Tarjan was a child there at the time, as the systematic destruction of about 800,000 Jews began under the command of Eichmann in May 1944.
The majority, except for those in Budapest, were deported by Hungarian-uniformed men in early July. Rescue efforts by diplomats from neutral countries, Zionists, various anti-fascist groups, and Christian clergymen and women were heroic and quite effective. Their struggles and successes will be presented and we are grateful to the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Miami for bringing us this program.
