Eva Brust Cooper, born in 1934 in Budapest Hungary, lived on the Danube River Pest side. She remembers her father receiving papers from Raoul Wallenberg that allowed the family to avoid deportation; the family's time in hiding in various locations around Budapest; her and her mother's attempts to appear Catholic by going to church, learning the Catechism, and acquiring false identification papers; her father's participation in negotiations with Adolf Eichmann in hopes of reducing the number of Hungarian Jews to be deported and her family's return to Budapest at the end of World War II.
