In the summer of 1944, Leslie Fazekas and his family are deported from their hometown of Debrecen, Hungary, to Vienna, Austria, as slave laborers. It is only after the war that they discover that most of the cattle car trains from their hometown were destined for Auschwitz. Fate and fortune have intervened to save their lives in the devastating circumstances of their captivity, and Leslie details all of his experiences in diary entries and letters to his girlfriend, Judit, who he was separated from in Vienna. Leslie?s diary entries and letters from August 10, 1944, to April 2, 1945, are not only love letters but also precious archival documents and a testimony of his family?s survival during a harrowing time.
