Dr. Kerenyi lived through WWII which had a profound impact on him. At the age of 10, his father was taken as a political prisoner to serve in a Siberian labor camp for ten years. Shortly after he returned, he made the agonizing choice to leave his reunited family and risk his life fleeing the country in search of freedom in the wake of the 1956 Hungarian revolution.
