Holocaust Survivor Talk: Susanne Reyto

Susanne was born just six days before the Nazi occupation of Hungary in March 1944 and survived the first year of her life living with her mother in so-called “protected houses,” with protective papers (Schutzpass) from the Swedish and Swiss legations.

Time & Location

Living under cold and damp conditions in the basement, she spent most of her first year suffering from colds or pneumonia with little food and without access to medication. Susanne and her mother survived, and after liberation they were reunited with her father. Her childhood experiences and her difficult escape from Communist Hungary in the late 1950s left Susanne with an unwavering spirit of optimism and perseverance. She grew up in Australia, lived on Guam while her husband served in the US Navy, and has traveled the world.
