Video: Sheltering Jews during World War II

April  30, 2014

Jeno Laszlo Berta was born in the village of Hegyhàtsàl, county of Vas-(Megye), Hungary, in 1937. During World War II, Hungary's Jewish population was not targeted for extermination until 1944. However, once the round-ups and deportations began, they were run with ruthless and brutal efficiency. Berta witnessed such evil personally as Jewish neighbors were marched away.
