The clerk asked if she had a typewriter. She did. It was the third time Ilona Haendel dodged the Nazis and snuck out of a Budapest ghetto to ask the clerk for a few Swiss protection papers for her friends and family. The clerk saved her another trip by putting the official stamp and seal on more than 100 papers of Swiss protection for her to complete on her own typewriter for other Jewish people living in the ghetto. With those papers, Haendel’s family and friends were able to live in buildings under Swiss protection.
