Blacklisted: A Journalist's Life in Central Europe by Paul Lendvai

Paul Lendvai, born a Hungarian Jew, was arrested by the Nazis as a teenager, survived the Holocaust, became a young communist activist in post-war Budapest, was arrested by the communists, again survived as one of the country's youngest political prisoners and, on his release, was blacklisted as a journalist by the communist regime. After fleeing to Vienna following the 1956 Revolution, Lendvai was to become one of the world's best-informed journalists and commentators on Eastern Europe. In this prize-winning memoir, Lendvai paints a chilling picture of ethnic hatred, political turbulence and murderous anti-Semitism which have characterized the history of 20th century Central Europe. His encounters with killers, torturers, onlookers and victims, traitors and heroes make for gripping reading.
