About

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. Living under cold and damp conditions in the basement which were normally used for storage and not for living spaces, she spent most of her first year suffering from colds or pneumonia without much food and certainly no medication. She and her mother survived it all and after liberation were reunited with her father. Her childhood experiences and her ultimate and 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.

No RSVP required, but space is limited.

Survivor talks are generously supported by Arnold L. Gilberg, MD, PhD and Family.
