Ephemeride of the Holocaust: January 4

If all the victims of Nazism were not Jewish, all Jews were victims.
Over 5000 of my brothers, were murdered a day from 1942 to 1945.
Now here is the list of Jewish souls who were murdered.
This is the story of one of these souls.

January 4
1941 300 Jews are taken to Ghetto Kalwaria Gora (Poland). Jews lived in the area since the seventeenth century. Gora Kalwaria was called the « New Jerusalem » because it was the birthplace of many Jewish scholars.
– 300 Jews were deported to Rudka the Warsaw ghetto.
In 1942 Brody (Lviv district) is created a ghetto for 6500 Jews by the Nazis now subject to arbitrary measures.

Sandor Alexander Bokshorn, Budapest, Hungary
January 4, 1912

Sandor grew up in Budapest where his father was a furrier. Sandor attended a Jewish school until he was 14 and then entered a business school run by the chamber of commerce. After he graduated in 1929, he entered his father’s business. Sandor then spent a year studying at the Sorbonne in Paris before entering university in Budapest to study economics.

1933-39: As a Jew, I was in the minority at the university because anti-Jewish laws enacted in the 1920s had set quotas that limited Jewish applicants. When I was 23, and had finished my coursework and just had my doctoral dissertation to write, I resumed working for my father’s business. I had no choice, really; because I was Jewish there was little chance for me to get a job in my field.

1940-44: In 1940 the first Jewish men were drafted by the Hungarian army as conscript labor; for three months I did farm work and drained swampland. Two years later, in 1942, the same year I finished my doctorate in economics, I was drafted for conscript labor again. In 1944 the Hungarian army sent me to the Russian front to build bunkers and dig trenches. After retreating, I was captured by the Soviets. We Jews had been conscripted for hard labor by one side, and then punished as enemy prisoners by the other.

Sandor was sent by the Soviets to POW camps, first in the Carpathians and then in Ukraine. After the war, he returned to Budapest.
