"In Agnes Kaposi’s name, FOLIO Sutton Coldfield pledge to share her testimony and work towards increasing community knowledge about the Holocaust through public events and library resources."
Agnes is a work camp survivor. Born in Debrecen, Hungary, her transport to Auschwitz was diverted due to an administrative error and she ended up in Strasshoff forced labour camp. After the war she escaped communist Hungary and became a successful electrical engineer here in the UK.
