    Consists of a Hebrew copy and an English language translation of "The Man of a Thousand Faces: The Story of Tibor Slezák," 124 pages, by Avivah Even Hen. Tibor Slezák was a medical student and member of the Czech resistance in Brno at the beginning of the war, assisting those attempting to flee Czechoslovakia to Palestine. After the German invasion, he returned to his hometown of Źilina briefly before escaping over the border to Hungary. He lived in Budapest and was able to acquire the stamp of a military officer which allowed him to create false orders to be able to save people from deportation. He worked at a sanatorium and at a pharmacy in Budapest (among other odd jobs) and though he had many narrow escapes, Tibor and his brother Willy were able to escape the ghetto and deportation. After the war, Tibor finished his medical studies, married, and immigrated to Israel in 1963. The English translation from Hebrew was completed and the original text edited by Dalia Frieder.
