"Well in the First World War he fought in the war, and he was wounded, and he had the highest decorations which one could get as a medical man, not as a fighting but as a medical man, and he was very proud of them. He never went out to demonstrations, and he never put them up, but occasionally brought them out of the cupboard and showed them to us. He was very proud of them. And he had a letter from the State that he should send them back and he shouldn't consider himself Hungarian any more. And for him that was about one of the biggest blows."
