Young Andrew Salamon  in pre-war Budapest, Hungary.My name is Andrew Salamon.

In 1930, my parents and my older brother moved to Budapest where, in May of that year, father started working for the Gruenfeld Brothers’ wholesale business. 

Two years later, I was born. It was 1932, the year the Nazi party experienced its first success at the polls in Germany– not the best year for a Jewish child to come into this world in Europe.

My parents, Gizella and Herman. My parents, Gizella and Herman.
