Oral history interview with Tibor Kasztner

Oral History | Accession Number: 2011.288.16 | RG Number: RG-50.670.0016

Tibor Kasztner, born in Mako, Hungary in 1936, discusses his memories of people using derogatory terms for Jews in everyday conversations during his childhood; witnessing Jewish families wearing Star of David badges being forced to walk to the train station where they were loaded into wagons; the community’s silence about the deportations; how his father, who worked as a locksmith, refused to unlock Jewish homes for looters; visiting a looted Jewish house and seeing the home in disarray; hearing that the house was later rented to an acquaintance; and an older colleague who engaged in Holocaust denial.

Some video files begin with 10-60 seconds of color bars.
