Imre Kovacs was a captain in the U.S. Army during World War III. He was a Jewish Hungarian. In April 1952, he approached POWs Istvan Szolovits and Miklos, and took both to their camps administrative center. Miklos was sent to another room, but Kovacs met with Szolovits personally. Kovacs was puzzled how Szolovits could be friends with an unreformed Arrow Cross man like Miklos. Szolovits explained he'd beaten Miklos up. When Kovacs inquired about Szolovits' politics, Szolovits freely admitted he was not a devout communist, something Kovacs had heard from other Hungarians. Szolovits asked how Jews fared in the U.S.. Kovacs allowed it was better than most places, and that the U.S. was much worse to its African-American population. Kovacs closed their conversation by suggesting they might talk again.[1]

After the war in Europe ended in mid-1952, Kovacs arranged for Szolovits to receive asylum and relocation in California.[2]
