Miksa Domonkos: The Mayor Who Worked In Hell

A story from Hungary unlike any other in our collection. Miksa Domonkos was a decorated soldier in the Austro-Hungarian Army in the First World War. During the Second World War, he acted as the de facto mayor of the infamous Budapest ghetto, bringing in food and medicine to save lives, and working closely with Raoul Wallenberg to protect even more. In the 1950s, the Communist secret police arrested Miksa Domonkos and accused him of murdering Wallenberg. A story of remarkable bravery, and of tragedy.
