Monthly Dinner

Wed., Oct 5, 2016

Guest Speaker:
Julius Royal

No Host Bar Starts: 6:00 p.m.
Dinner Starts at 7:00 p.m.

Julius was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1932. He attended a class for Jews at a Christian school. His father Dave, was a blond, blue-eyed mechanical engineer and Austrian from a British family. About 1942, in the middle of the night, Dave was seized by German agents and taken to Berlin to work on U-boat designs. The family only heard from him once or twice before he was killed by advancing Soviet artillery at the end of the war.

Julius Royal In 1944 Julius heard his mother, Dr Rosie Neumann Royal, was held at a temporary camp in a football field and scheduled to be deported to Auschwitz. He got to see her one more time before she was herded into a cattle car. One of his mother's sisters was forced to live in the ghetto. Julius' aunt Magda was gassed at Dachau, along with her 5-year old daughter. An uncle was transported to Ukraine and died as a slave laborer. Dr Rosie Royal survived Auschwitz and practiced medicine in Budapest until age 75.

Julius wanted to be a pilot and attended the Hungarian Air Force Officer Academy from 1952 to 1954. In 1956 he was the co-pilot of a crew of four aboard a fighter-bomber during the Hungarian Uprising. When his aircraft was shot down by a much faster Soviet MiG-17, he bailed out and fled across the Austrian border.

In 1959 Julius emigrated to Canada and then to the US in 1964. Despite all he has gone through in life, Julius still has a twinkle in his eyes!
