The Hungarian team's move to dedicate the match to Istvan Toth, a former FTC player and coach, is the first concrete step taken by the government to combat anti-Semitism following its joint declaration on behalf of 21 co-sponsoring nations delivered to the UN Human Rights Council. The players of both clubs were escorted onto the field by children wearing shirts adorned with Toth's likeness, as a symbol of civil society's commitment to honoring heroes of tolerance and combating discrimination. Toth was an early Ferencvarosi TC player and later the club's head coach before joining the Hungarian anti-fascist resistance, following Nazi Germany's invasion of Hungary. Toth helped several hundred Hungarians, including many Jews, escape Nazi detention and death before his arrest and execution in February, 1945. "Istvan Toth is a football hero and a righteous person, who scoured the biggest goal of the 20th century by sav- ing Hungarian Jews in the midst of the greatest inferno of the century," said ANDRAS HEISLER, president of the Federation of Jewish Communities in Hungary. "By remembering Istvan Toth, we are honoring a celebrated sport figure who stood up against violence, hatred, and discrimination. His life and behavior is an example to fol- low in all places and times." (Unfortunately, I never heard of Istvan Toth before and I wonder if you have? I feel richer for knowing about him and glad to bring this story to you.) President Warren G. Harding in Winter Park. Our community and staff is so very accom- modating and helpful. We laugh every day here and it truly feels like one big family. Allegro has made a point to celebrate all the Jewish holidays and even have Shabbat services here in the community." (I know that Lucilla and her late husband, Stanley, were planning to move there someday but unfortunately, he passed. They were a loving couple. Also, Lucilh has a special place in my heart because she, and her wonderful sister, PEARL HALIKMAN, were born in Brazil, a place I consider paradise.)
