József-Antall-Sr

Commissioner on War Refugees, Hungarian Ministry of the Interior, was honored as Righteous Among the Nations on December 13, 1989 for his work with the Polish Citizens’ Committee for Refugee Affairs; together they disguised Polish Jews who had fled to Hungary as non-Jews and facilitated their survival. He also intervened on behalf of members of the Hungarian underground. He was arrested and tortured in 1944 but was released when the Polish Citizens’ Committee petitioned on his behalf.
