Ibolya Daróczy experienced the horrors of 1956 in Miskolc, where she lived and worked as an accountant in a small factory in the city. She was caught in the crossfire of a secret-police attack on anti-government demonstrators and nearly lost her life. Afterwards, she fled alone, with just a small briefcase to her name, to Austria in early 1957. She met her fiancee and settled in Cleveland, Ohio, where she took an active part in the Hungarian community.
Interview conducted by Eszti and Réka Pigniczky in Cleveland, Ohio in April of 2015.
