    Subject: Ernest Gidaly
    Ernest Gidaly (1891-1945) and Margaret Kunitzer Gidaly (1900-) lived in the 8th district of Budapest on Vig Street #18. They had a son named Paul (born 3/22/1925) and a daughter named Elly (born 12/1927). Two days after the Nazi occupation of Budapest in March 1944, Ernest, a successful Jewish merchant of textiles, was taken from a streetcar on his way to work and sent to an internment camp in Kistarcsa. Later, he was deported to Auschwitz, sent on a death march in January 1945, and died. In May 1944, Paul was 19 years old when called to a forced labor battalion working to clean up the bombarded countryside. He managed to escape and hide in Budapest under false papers as Joszef Ganitzki until the war's end. Margaret and Elly were forced on a death march near the Austrian border, but they escaped, returned to Budapest, and remained in hiding until the end of the war. Elly (now Klein) moved to Palestine in 1947. Paul currently resides in the United States.
