credits from Hungary weren't
completely acceptable to the
Viennese, but they were ac-
ceptable in Munich. JDC's
director in Austria telephoned
the JDC director in Germany,
Sam Haber, to try to arrange
the transfer. Haber first ob-
jected. Then Joe Schwartz
negotiated with him. 'How
many packs of cigarettes?
How many cans of sardines?'
When Marika came to Munich,
I was put in charge of the pro-
gram. I made sure she grad-
uated and we were married in

1952."

Although Marika Feder was
able to come out of Hungary as
a student, her mother had to
stay behind. Ted and Marika
futilely went through all the of- \I
ficial routes for her to join
them. Feder's attorney finally
contacted a smuggler who
agreed to bring her out for a
substantial sum of American
dollars.
"We agreed at the beginning
of November that the money
would be paid if she came out
of Hungary after Dec. 31,
1951. Within four weeks, she
telephoned to say that she was
finally being processed. Now,
we didn't know if it was
because of the smuggler or
whether it was a normal pro-
cessing of the application. We
couldn't tell her over the phone
to come out before Dec. 31," he
explained. "And when do you
think she finally came out? She
left Hungary on the 31st and
came out at 5 a.m. in the
morning on the first of the
(
year."
"We never knew if the smug-
gler moved things along or
not," said Feder. "My lawyer
couldn't be sure either. In the

end, the smuggler settled for
25 percent of the agreed price. '\

We seem to have had an
`honest' smuggler."
From Munich, the newly
married Feders and Feder's
mother-in-law moved to Vienna.
There, he closed the last DP

camp and witnessed the devas-

tating effects of the Hungarian
Revolution.
"People crossed the border
in the dead of winter. They had
walked through the low water
points of lakes. Some came
carrying children who had
frozen to death. We didn't` -\
want to put these people in-
camps. We wanted to keep '
them in hotels. There was a ,\
hero in the American govern-
ment who made it possible for
us to Ate these refugees
quickly to the United Stottes," -(
says Feder. "His name was
Richard Nixon."
Then Vice President under
Eisenhower, Richard Nixon
devised a system which let
refugees bypass the normal,
long complicated U.S. im-
migration system.
Feder himself was deeply in-
volved in the relief of Hungar-
