Eva was born in 1941 in Budapest, Hungary. When she was a young child, Nyilas, members of the Hungarian pro-Nazi Arrow Cross Party, arrested 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. 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. She left Hungary with her family in 1956 and settled in Los Angeles, where she raised two kids.
