Holocaust Survivor Talk: Eva Nathanson

Eva Nathanson was born in 1941 in Budapest, Hungary. When she was a young child, the Hungarian Nyilas, members of the pro-Nazi Arrow Cross Party, arrested most of her family. She was very young, but remembers that this took place at her grandfather’s house. This was the last time she saw most of her family. A family friend rescued Eva from this deportation, and provided her and her mother with shelter. For the rest of the war, Eva hid in various homes. She remembers her fear of soldiers, weapons and small spaces, all of which still resonate with her. As the Soviet army approached Budapest, the Nyilas tried to kill the remaining Jews as quickly as possible. Eva and her mother were just barely spared by a soldier. They were officially liberated in May 1945. After the war, Budapest had been completely transformed by the new Communist regime. She was able to leave with her family in 1956, just months after the revolution, and arrived in the United States in January 1957. Eva settled in Los Angeles, where she raised two children.

Holocaust Survivor Talk: Ann Signett

Ann was born in Rome, Italy in 1928. In 1938, anti-Jewish laws were promulgated throughout Italy, which changed the course of everyday life for her family. The following year when the war broke out, the Italian government under Mussolini allied itself with Nazi Germany. Italy did not turn its Jewish population over to Nazi authorities, but when Mussolini’s regime fell in 1943, Nazi Germany occupied the country. Italian Jews now faced deportation, and Ann’s family quickly fled to the mountain town of Alvito. They spent several difficult months living there and concealing their Jewish identity. They were finally liberated by British troops, and after the war they returned to Rome. Ann married an American provost sergeant and settled in the United States in 1947.

Holocaust Survivor Talk: Bob Geminder

Bob Geminder was born in 1935 in Wroclaw, Poland. Upon the outbreak of war, Bob’s family was forcibly relocated to Stanislawow, a city then under Soviet occupation. The family’s fate worsened in 1941 when Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union. Stanislawow fell under heavy bombing, during which time his father suffered a fatal heart attack. His mother soon remarried, and worked with her husband to protect Bob and his brother. The four of them eventually made their way to Warsaw, where after the Uprising, they were sent to Auschwitz. Just before the train arrived, they managed to escape, and hid until they were liberated by Soviet troops in January 1945. Bob’s family left Poland for the United States in 1947, where he eventually worked as an engineer and a teacher.
