Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew born in 1924 in Kaposvàr, Hungary, to a family of Jewish converts to Protestantism. In 1939 Kasza joined her older brother in Budapest, but returned to be with her parents in Kaposvàr in 1944, after the establishment of a ghetto, having found out that she was Jewish. Due to her studies in agriculture and horticulture, she was put in charge of the garden of the local SS headquarters and allowed to live there with her mother. Despite being offered a chance to escape deportation, Kasza accompanied her parents to Auschwitz. She and her mother were selected for slave labor, but her father was killed on arrival. After four months, she was separated from her mother (who was gassed) and sent to Bergen-Belsen. In fall 1944, Kasza was transferred to Duderstadt, and in April 1945 to Theresienstadt, where she was liberated by the Soviets. She returned to Budapest to be reunited with her brother. In 1949 she followed her brother to France, finally settling in Paris. She studied acting and appeared on stage, television, and in film in France and other countries.
