Ambassador Pressman Meets Holocaust Survivors

On February 11, 2023 Ambassador Pressman met with two Hungarian survivors of the Holocaust , György and Ágnes Kun, to hear their stories of resilience.

“When 12-year-old György Kun arrived at Auschwitz, he was not sent immediately to the gas chambers because “Doctor” Mengele thought György and his brother were twins. This morning, on a day when those who valorize Nazis march in Budapest, I brought my twin boys to meet with György and fellow survivor Ágnes Kun to hear their story, to remember, to recommit. Ágnes and György’s courage is unthinkable, their strength an inspiration, their hearts enormous, and their story one we need to never forget.” – Ambassador David Pressman
