Summary biography

Agnes is a work camp survivor. Born in Debrecen, Hungary, her transport to Auschwitz was diverted due to an administrative error and she ended up in Strasshof forced labour camp. After the war she escaped communist Hungary and became a successful electrical engineer here in the UK. In 2020 she published an autobiography ‘Yellow Star, Red Star’.

I don’t think my story is a Jewish story. I think it is a story of intolerance, injustice.
