My Only Choice: 1942-1956 Hungary by Helen Mary Szablya


2013-08-22
Helen M. Szablya, Honorary Consul General of Hungary, is an award-winning author, columnist, translator, and lecturer, and has been a Board Member of the Hungarian American Coalition for 20 years. Her family saga is a personal memoir that paints a vividly detailed picture about the daily lives and struggles of Hungarian citizens in the period between WWII and the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. Her description of the 51-day-long siege of Budapest in 1944, its tragic aftermath, the increasingly cruel power of Soviet dictatorship, and of her family’s eventual escape after the defeat of the 1956 Revolution will amaze and touch the imagination of all readers.
“From the eyes and mind of an innocent but precocious young teen, Helen Szablya, paints a picture of how the inconceivable became reality. Hungary as the playground of tyrants in the 1940\'s,,is depicted in its inability to withstand fascism or communism. A personal account, as engrossing as fiction but true, this book serves the lessons of history irresistibly on a silver tray.” Annette Lantos-Tilleman-Dick , Daughter of the late Congressman Tom Lantos
