Edited by Eli Netzer. Translated by Pamela Segev and Avri Fischer. "This book contains one of the most inspiring pages in the history of Hungarian Jewry, the recruitment and organization of the Zionist Youth Movement in the year 1944, during the NAzi occupation. The youth movements mounted resistance against the Nazi conquerors and their Hungarian helpers, and were able to rescue many Jewish youth from the claws of extermination, as well as tens of thousands of Jews from Budapest and many, many more from among the prisoners of forced labor camps throughout Hungary. This anthology presents 420 personalities from amoung the Zionist underground activists in Hungary in the year 1944, with their pictures and brief biographies. The material in this book was assembled sixty years after the events, and therefore record retrieval was a formidable challenge, yet we were able to locate and find details of approximately a third of the resistance activists." edited from promotional copy.
