She recounts being raised as a Catholic; celebrating Passover with her father's family in Budapest; her father changing his name to an obviously Serb one; attending architecture school beginning in 1936; expulsion as a Jew in 1941; her parents' eviction; living in Belgrade; working for a man who knew she was Jewish; her father's employment by friends; his death in an accident; hiding Jewish friends of her parents (one committed suicide when they were caught, one was killed, and one survived); their arrest; release due to influential friends; her mother immediately traveling to Zagreb to live with her sister, who was married to a Serb; marriage by an Orthodox priest, after she converted, to a Jewish man living on false papers as a Serb; fleeing when her husband's room was searched by police; liberation; her conversion to Judaism; active participation in the Jewish community; emigration to Israel; and returning in 1956. Ms. A. discusses her sons' marriages to non-Jews; one son's alienation from them and identity as a non-Jew (he lives in Israel); and her other son's strong Jewish identity.
