Oral history interview with Dorde Hajzler

Oral History | Accession Number: 1997.135.4 | RG Number: RG-50.459.0004

Dorde Hajzler, born in Subotica, Yugoslavia (Serbia), describes being a member of the Marxist, Zionist movement Tehelet Lavan; crossing into the communist youth movement when the Germans invaded, needing a more attainable goal than the creation of a Jewish state; setting a wheat silo in a neighboring village on fire in August 1941 with two others; being brought before a Hungarian court; being a minor and sentenced to eight years in prison while the other two were sentenced to death; avoiding the deportations of Hungarian Jews because he was in jail; and the administrator of the jail managing to prevent Jewish prisoners from being deported by the Nazis.

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