Abstract

In this article, Gergely Kunt analyzes the diary of Roza Bodo, a thirty-six-year-old Hungarian voluntary nurse and refugee, and uses it to discuss women's experiences on the Hungarian war front and at a Bavarian refugee camp. In September 1944, Roza left Transylvania for Hungary to avoid the approaching frontlines. In the course of her escape, she was rape by Soviet soldiers, and Bodo argues that Roza's diary served as a way for her to mitigate her sexual assault. In the final months of the war, she fled from Hungary to Germany, where she was taken to a Bavarian displaced persons camp maintained by the occupying US forces. (JSTOR)
