Shoal
Posted by: Laszlo Fodor (ID *****3913) Date: February 03, 2007 at 11:23:48
  of 91

After visiting the Yad Vashem site (www.yadvashem.org) I was very shocked to discover over 400 entries for victims named "Fodor". I was raised Catholic and had no idea that we as a family were victimized in this manner. I was born "Laszlo Fodor" in Dorog, Hungary in 1954 to Laszlo and Margit (Juhaiz) Fodor. My father ran away from Hungary at the age of 16 after my grandfather killed himself to pre-WWII Germany. Eventually he wound up in the German SS Hungarisch Grenidiers. He survived the war but 23 men named "Laszlo Fodor" died in the Shoal as documented by Yad Vashem. I would like to have clues to the puzzle. I am aware that undesirables(mentally retarded, homosexuals, gypsies,etc.)and the "Righteous" were exterminated. But I find it hard to believe that so many Fodor's were individually or collectively in those groups. Also I am aware that during the late 1800's that many people of Hebraic decent in order to prove their loyalty to their hosting nations became the "faithful" by converting to and adopting non-Hebraic positions. Here again the puzzle becomes more intrigueing. Does the Fodor name have a Hebraic connection? I would appreciate any information.
