Translation of George Byfield wartime diary and album ("Oroszfront, 1942/43")
The collection consists of an English translation of the wartime diary and album created by György Beifeld (later George Byfield), titled “Oroszfront 1942-1943: Munkaszolgálat Oroszországban” (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, 2001.156). George Somorjai, the donor and translator, included his translations, annotations, and additional explanatory texts to each page of the album. Also included are essays on the historical background and context of the album, which describe, among other things, the participation of the Somorjai’s father, Dr. Lajos Somorjai, in the same labor battalion documented by Beifeld, who was acquainted with Lajos Somorjai.
