About Hungary, Jewish Survivors listed in "Hirek az Elhurcoltakrol", 1945

In 1945 a now defunct Hungarian periodical, Hirek az Elhurcoltakrol (News about the Deportees) published five issues listing Hungarian Jewish survivors located in various European Displaced Person camps. Most of these camps were in Germany and Austria, but there are also lists from Sweden, France, Czechoslovakia, Poland and the former Soviet Union. In the latter case, these were Hungarian Jewish prisoners of war (forced laborers) captured by the Russians.
