About this Item

Original ephemera. All items are written in Hungarian except one letter and a few postcards in English. All but three letters are written from addresses in Hungary (almost all Budapest, a few from Komarom. One letter is from Stockholm) to residents of Budapest from 1943 to 1945 . Most in original envelopes but almost all stamps removed. One 1960 letter is from Vera Rohonyi, daughter of Dr. Oscar Rohonyi, who has apparently immigrated to California (her letter is written in Hungarian with 3 original photographs of her family enclosed with the letter.) One other later letter is also dated 1960 and is a typed signed letter to Maria Torday detailing her inheritance from her grandmother Josefa Taussig . Majority of letters are addressed to Maria Adler in Budapest and many are from Dr. Barta Gyorgy but also from other people as Dr. Klein Laszlo, Dr. Halberg Gyula and others. Other letters are addressed to Bonta Sandorne or to Nini. The 11 postcards are addressed to Stephen Torday of Wantagh, New York, and are dated 1959-1962. Three additional original photographs are included, clearly taken in Hungary but not identified, one shows 3 young women doing very heavy labor, second a a group of young women eating outdoors and third, the inside of a nice restaurant. Probably ther is some interesting information about life in war torn Budapest at end of WW2 if one can read Hungarian. Collection: Bookseller Inventory # a87377
