    In his memoir Erno (Erno) Lazarovits describes his experiences in the Holocaust. He was drafted into the Budapest labor battalion in May 1944. The forced laborers were herded towards the western border of the country (Gánt, Bodajk, Mór, Fertoʺrákos, Szombathely), and later transferred by the Hungarian gendarmes to the German Todt organization, which took them to Deutsch-Schützen, Austria. Subsequently they had to go on foot to Mauthausen, and finally they were liberated in Gunskirchen, Austria on May 4, 1945. Using flash-back technique Lazarovits remembers his childhood in Szilágysomlyó (Romania)́, school years in the Kolozsvár (Cluj) (Romania) tarbut (Hebrew-language school), his membership in Hashomer Hatzair, and leftist political organizations. After his liberation, in August 1945, Ernoʺ Lazarovits returned to Kolozsvár (Cluj).
