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. A family friend rescued Eva from the same fate and provided her and her mother with shelter.

For the rest of the war, Eva hid in various homes. As the Soviet army approached Budapest, the Nyilas tried to kill the remaining Jews as quickly as possible. Eva and her mother were spared by a soldier. They were officially liberated in May 1945. After the war, Budapest was completely transformed by the new Communist regime. Eva was able to leave with her family in 1956 and arrived in the United States in January 1957. Eva settled in Los Angeles, where she raised two kids.
