ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A Holocaust survivor who fled Budapest to Mexico during World War II is scheduled to speak in Albuquerque.
Holocaust & Intolerance Museum of New Mexico announced this week that Samuel Marein-Efron will speak at the center on February 9.
Marein-Efron was born into a wealthy Budapest family but was forced to flee after anti-Semitic laws were passed in Hungary. His family later ended up in Mexico City in 1941.
His father later helped refugees from Poland.
