Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ilona Kolonits (17 March 1922 - 2 August 2002) was a Hungarian documentary film director. Ilona Kolonits was born in Budapest to a family of political activists who took an active part in the Hungarian anti-fascist *resistance movement during the Second World War . Kolonits was influenced by the selfless social dedication of her family and also by their associations with left-wing humanist intellectuals including the Hungarian poet, Attila J zsef. During the Second World War the Kolonits family helped and sheltered in their home victims of fascist persecution, and the teen-aged Ilona rescued of a number of Jewish children by taking them out of the Budapest getto in this way saving them from being deported to concentration camps (in 2007 Ilona Kolonits, her mother, Paolina Holka, and Ilona's two elder sisters, Margit and Paola were awarded the Righteous Among the Nations title by Yom HaShoah).show more
