the page was written was listed as living in Holshani, Oszmiana, Vilno,
Most likely, the place of death has nothing to do with Hungary. If the page
of testimony is in Hebrew, "Leta" may mean "Lita" or Lithuania in Hebrew.
Besides, "Hungary" is an English word. Hungarians call it Magyar, it is
called Ungarn in German, Vengriya in Russian and Wegry in Polish.
All this is a conjecture based on the third party's reading and interpreting
an original document. It would be much easier if the page of testimony was
placed on e.g. Viewmate.
