Her father was taken by the Hungarian Arrow Cross and his Christian partner in a textile store appropriated the business. She was given asylum by the Swedish Embassy, where Szent-Gyorgyi was also a refugee, and worked there (with 350 other refugees) under Raoul Wallenberg. Wallenberg had her stop wearing the yellow badge, succeeded in the return of her apartment, and issued many hundreds of "Schutzpasses." She describes Wallenberg's wit and daring in dealing with Arrow Cross and German officers. She credits the Swiss Red Cross as well as the Swedish Red Cross for their aid. In 1945, after the war, ended, she was in Sweden, where she worked with Count Bernadotte as a teacher of refugees.

Mr. Miller vividly describes what he saw: prisoners who looked like walking skeletons, mass graves, and crematoria. Once the survivors realized he was Jewish, they told him their experiences. Later, he briefly stopped at a work camp for women and relates the testimony of a Russian soldier who had seen atrocities in Dachau and Auschwitz. Mr. Miller mentions his experiences while stationed in the Army of Occupation in Bavaria in 1945. Because he spoke their language, he had several interesting encounters with German citizens

She describes the kindness of people in the small towns toward the persecuted, their decency and political thinking but also the willingness of the French police and beauracracy to collaborate with the Nazis. She describes flight, hunger, and painful separation from her parents when she was hidden in a convent in Soréze. After one year, the family reunited and was helped with food and hiding by two generations of a Catholic family, with whom they remain in contact. After the war, the family moved to Paris.
