The Piroska Berki and Gustave Balog family papers contains two memoirs, one written by Gustave and the other by Piroska. Piroska’s memoir details life in Hungary during World War II, as she and her family was forced to move into the Jewish ghettos of Budapest. Gustave Balog, cousin of Piroska’s husband Andor Berki, wrote about his experiences prior to the war, and the history of his family. He also describes how his brother paid for his release from the Dachau and Buchenwald concentration camps. Also included in this collection is the marriage certificate for Andor and Piroska Berki, Piroska’s embarkation card for the S.S. Marine Marlin, on which the family sailed when they immigrated to the United States, and the birth certificate of Gustave’s grandfather, Nathan Blau (Balog), from 1873.
