Robert Holczer was born in 1929 in Budapest, Hungary. He begins by telling his early life experiences of anti-Semitism. Soon after Hungary was invaded by Germany in March 1944, the country's Jews began to be deported to Nazi camps. However, Robert and his mother were able to avoid deportation by hiding in an apartment building that served, during the siege of Budapest, as a clinic for wounded Hungarian Arrow Cross soldiers who were Nazi allies. With the secret help of an Arrow Cross officer, the clinic saved the lives of the 400 Jews who lived in the building. After the war, Robert lived in Israel and Hungary before following his cousin to the United States, for he had promised his cousin's mother that he would take care of him. He then became an American citizen and had an American family.
