this morning (wednesday 31st), 12.04-12.16pm, on bbc radio 4
david gur: a member of the jewish hungarian underground (presented by mike lanchin) (in the witness series)

David Gur has been speaking to Mike Lanchin about his part in one of the largest rescue operations organised by Jews during the Holocaust.

Soon after Hitler ordered the invasion of Hungary in March 1944, the Nazis had begun rounding up hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews. Most were immediately sent to their deaths in the concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau.
David helped produce tens of thousands of forged identification documents. These allowed Jews to hide their true identities and escape deportation to the death camps.”
