Dr. Emil Eibenschütz
In 1944, Dr.
Emil Eibenschütz, dentist, was a leading member of the Jewish
Reform community of Sárvár. His wife, Bözske Günsberger was my
grandmother’s younger sister.
Bözske was the
eighth child of Ignac Günsberger from Alsóság in Vas County (a
small town about 15 km from Sárvár) was born on June 5, 1894 in
Alsóság. She married Dr. Eibenschütz abt. 1922-23, probably in
Alsóság. Their only child, Zsuzsa, was born abt. 1925-26.
On March 1944,
when the Germans entered Sárvár, Bözske was almost 50 years old.
They were all transported to the Auschwitz-Birkenau
extermination camp. Emil and Bözske were probably judged too old
to work. Zsuzsa would have been abt. 18 or 19 years old – able
to work, yet she never came back.
When I talked
Alice Lok Cahana, she remembered Dr Eibenschütz and Zsuzsa
from Sárvár, but didn’t remember seeing Zsuzsa at any time after
the German occupation.
Most of what I
write about Emil, Bözske and Zsuzsa and other members of this
family are based on research and what my cousin told me many
years later, in 1998.
