    Biography
    Alexander Feuer was born August 1, 1929 in Satu Mare, Hungary. A ghetto was established in the town in the spring of 1944. He lived there only a few weeks before being deported to Auschwitz in May. In August he was sent to Germany, where he was moved around between the various concentration camps in the Kaufering system until March of 1945. Four days before liberation he escaped from the Turkheim camp, but returned immediately afterwards and registered as a displaced person. At this point he was taken to Landsberg, where he remained only briefly before undertaking the trek on foot to Memmingen. There he was processed by OMGUS officials and placed in the UNRRA children's home in Chiemsee. He remained in the home until his emigration to the United States aboard the Marine Flasher in September 1947.
