Legacy of Rescue: A Daughter's Tribute
by Marta Fuchs
Legacy of Rescue: A Daughter’s Tribute is an illustrated intergenerational memoir of the author’s father, Morton (Miksa) Fuchs, and Zoltán Kubinyi, the Commanding Officer who saved him and over 100 other Hungarian Jewish men in forced labor under his command during the Holocaust.
Captured as a POW by the liberating Russian Army, Zoltan Kubinyi, a devout Seventh Day Adventist, died a year later in a Siberian labor camp, and was buried in an unmarked grave. Because of Morton Fuchs’ testimony, he was posthumously honored as a Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Jerusalem.
The story of rescue came full circle in the summer of 2011 when the author and her brother took their children back to Hungary to meet the rescuer's family. With the rescuer’s son, an infant when his father went off to war, his wife and granddaughters -- the great grandchildren of Zoltan Kubinyi -- the author’s family discussed the heroic actions of this compassionate and courageous man none of them knew but who has made such an indelible impact on all their lives.
Legacy of Rescue is a story that inspires all of us to make a difference in everyday life.
