In the early summer of 1944, 9-year-old George Kalman and his mother and grandfather joined 35 people from his Hungarian village at the railway station in response to a government order. “At a certain time you had to be at the railway station with nothing larger than a carry-on bag. All the Jews were there and we were shoved into a railway car – 81 of us into that small car,” he says. “It was pretty hot by that time and those little windows didn’t give much air and of course, no toilets, no light, no air, no food, nothing.”
