This conversation between John Dobai and his daughter, artist/ filmmaker, Sarah Dobai will focus on the aspects of John’s account highlighted in the forthcoming film The Donkey Field. The film is centred on his experiences of the Holocaust in Budapest in 1944, which all took place in his home city, and how he survived thanks to the work of Swedish diplomat, Raoul Wallenberg.
