Overview

A story of survival and triumph.

In “A light in the Distance,” originally written as a wedding present for his daughter, Stephen Veres tells us about his extraordinary life. Beginning with the war years in Hungary under German occupation, his story goes on to describe the horrible conditions endured by his family in the years of Communist rule after World War II.

The title comes from his riveting account of the Veres family’s daring escape to Austria. Emigrating from there to the United States, they settled in as new Americans – starting their lives over again.

Stephen writes with great love and warmth of his wife Elaine and their two children. His memoir also speaks frankly about his challenges and success in business.

As one of tens of thousands of Hungarian refugees, Stephen Veres is grateful for the gift of a new life in a free country. This book is a big thank you to the many caring people whose generosity and guidance helped a poor, young refugee to survive and prosper.
It is a story of a dream come true.

He became a successful businessman and he is very involved with the Burbank Kiwanis Club a local service organization. He wrote his Autobiography about his extraordinary life as a wedding present for his daughter. He wanted to share his experiences with the hope that it will help and inspire others. His book is a big thank you to the many caring people whose generosity and guidance helped a poor, young Hungarian refugee to survive and prosper.
