Tibor Munkacsy holding a chalked sign with his name. All of the children in the UNRRA children's home in Indersdorf, Germany were photographed in an attempt to locate relatives.

On September 30, 1945 Hanus Burger, Czech film director, and Curt Riess, a Jewish-German writer and journalist made a film on life at Kloster Indersdorf. Tibor asked them if they had heard about his half-brother Martin Minkacsy, who had emigrated from Hungary to the United States and became a famous fashion photographer. This connection led immediately to arrangements for Tibor to gain admission to the United States and begin a new life.
