Eva Dukes Friedlander was born in 1921 and grew up in Budepest, Hungary. During World War II, she and her mother were able to get false identification papers amd move across the Danube to the other part of the city where no one knew them. Eva's mother died her hair from Blond to Brown as part of her disguise. Eva had an office job and her mother cared for two children until the Germans retreated out of Budapest. At war's end, Eva met her husband, George, who survived two forced labor camps. The couple moved to Italy, where George had once studied biochemistry. After four years in Italy, they immigrated to the United States settling in Atlanta, Georgia. The collection consists of original immigration documents and photocopies of the identification papers of George Friedlander; the conversion papers of George's sister, Klara Friedlander, who converted to Greek Orthodoxy in Rome in a failed attempt to save her life; and a letter of recommendation for George Friedlander from the Coca Cola company, written in support of the emigration from Hungary of Friedlander family members following the Revolution in 1956.
