Description

Talk and document display

The National Archives holds extensive records of the plight of the Hungarian Jews for 1944, covering many aspects of lesser known events. To mark Holocaust Memorial Day, we welcome John Dobai to talk about his personal survival story.

John was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1934. His father worked in a bank and his mother was a housewife; John was their only child. Worried by the rise of Nazism and far-right nationalists in Hungary in the 1930, John’s parents decided that the family should convert to Roman Catholicism.

His story of survival connects with many of our documents, which tell of attempts of rescue, negotiation, and of ultimate tragedy.


We run an exciting range of events and exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. For more details, visit nationalarchives.gov.uk/whatson.
