Vanished Boyhood

The Azrieli Foundation | The Azrieli Series of Holocaust Survivor Memoirs

A rebel even then, George refused to wear the Jewish star. “Passing” as a Christian boy, he survived the siege of Budapest as the Soviet Red Army pressed closer, strafing the city while the fascist Arrow Cross continued to hunt for Jews.


George Stern was born on April 21, 1931, in the Budapest suburb of Újpest. After the war, he immigrated to Israel and fought in the War of Independence.
