Book description (eng): 
Shocking, poignant, makes you wonder many adjectives can be used to describe the stories documented by Ildi Hermann fine art photographer, however, the most proper characteristic of all would be that they are TRUE. They are true both in historical and personal sense. This unique, remembering photo album contains memories, the past and present of fourteen Holocaust survivors emigrating from Hungary to New York. Their past is revived nakedly and purely through their tears or wry humour to their disappointment and life affirmation, and private history and world history intertwine through their words: for example by telling us how a neighbour, a soldier, an old servant, a friend or a concierge behaved in certain situations. Fourteen fates: fourteen missing stories about everyday people, fourteen stories about survival.
