Emanuel (Manny) Mandel and his mother, along with other Hungarian Jews, were chosen to be part of an exchange negotiated by the Relief and Rescue Committee with the Nazis. They were to be traded for trucks and other goods. Manny spent six months in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp at age 12, but he considers himself lucky. Manny was allowed to stay with his mother and they were not forced to do labor.
