Kati Andai's first husband Gyorgy Tibor in forced labor

My first husband , Gyorgy Tibor, on forced labor in Turiaremete in the Subcarpathian region (today Ukraine). I met my first husband at the Conservatory, when I attended it. He had already graduated at that time as a violinist. We got married in secret in 1943, because my parents wouldn't agree, because he didn't make a living; he was in forced labor service. [In 1944 when Jews were moved to yellow-star houses] Rozsa Street 48 became a Jewish house (I lived with my parents in Rozsa Street 50). We had to move into a terrible flat overlooking the courtyard, and from there I had to go out to the KISOSZ-ground, and from there to the brick factory. Wallenberg came there, and we got a Swedish free pass [so I could get out]. We founded the Swedish protected houses in St. Istvan park in November 1944. I ran home to get my parents to come there. We even managed to get my husband out of the forced labor service in November '44. He was in a terrible condition, and I told him, 'Now you lie down, and don't move even if the walls fall in, because you are very sick.' One of our relatives enticed my mother away to the next street telling her that that protected house would be better. My husband and I remained in St. Istvan park until the end.
