From Auschwitz to Budapest: an extraordinary journey

Taking the train: final destination Budapest. Tuesday 3rd November 2015 It’s been very last minute but I am on my way to a country I have never been to, to meet a man I have never met. I am finally fulfilling a personal journey that started in the bitter cold of Auschwitz in 2007 and […]
