Description Eve Gabori is originally from Budapest, Hungary. She and her husband left in 1956 because of the Hungarian Revolution. She describes their escape from Hungary to Austria as 'adventurous.' From Austria they were able to emigrate to Canada, with the assistance of the Viennese Consulate. After arriving in Halifax, Mrs. Gabori and her husband took the train to Toronto. She describes her first impressions of the city, how she found her first job in Canada, and their first home. Mrs. Gabori was successful in finding a job as a librarian, and also went back to university, where she studied Greek philosophy. She talks about the various homes that she and her family lived in around the city. After a little while she divorced her first husband, and later remarried. Mrs. Gabori talks about their standard of living in Toronto. She says that the only thing she does not like about Canada is that there is not the same appreciation of culture, as there is in Europe. She herself works to try and change this attitude. The interview ends with Mrs. Gabori talking about her daughter.
