"In forced labor, as the Doctor, I burned
bones and bread, mixed the ashes, used them to soothe the sick.
And I gave them wild pears and apples, and it seemed to help a little."
"We spoke with a 32 year old woman from Oradea,
she had no idea about what happened here. She didn't learn in school,
or from her parents, or relatives, or friends, or anyone."
Dr. Karoly Mozes
Honorary Citizen of
the City of Oradea
April 28, 1917- October 25, 2005

"When I returned home
to Nagyvarad, I didn't find anyone left from my family. There
was no one. My wife, the child, they took everything, took them
to Auschwitz. So I can't tell you, I can't explain how I felt.
I was free. And I thought the world was mine. It was during the
'50's that I discovered the truth, that I was still not free."
Lajos Schwartz, Cantor of Oradea's Orthodox Synagogue

"What we're talking
about is how we could build a consensus around the need to respect
the Jews. Years from now people should talk about the good that
the Jews did for Varad. People should know that Jews were city builders,
lovers of humanity and people of character."

"Oradea was a mixed community, with the
Jews, the Romanians, the Hungarians. But there were no differences,
it didn't matter if you were Jewish or Hungarian until the Iron
Guard came and then the Arrow Cross, and then it was terrible….
There was the mass psychology that made people hate, I sensed
this. How should I say it, there was spontaneous anti-semitism."
A gentile who rescued dozens of Jews
during the time of Oradea's ghettos.
