Sandor Barta was born on January 14, 1892 in Kassa (slow. Košice, germ. Kaschau). His parents were Artur Barta (1857 - 1941) and Sarolta geb Reichard (1868 - 1923).

He married Alicia Theresia Fischof in Budapest on June 9, 1923. Alicia, also called Alicita, was born in Rosario, Argentine, on September 28, 1896. Her parents were Isidor Fischof and Elise Weil (* April 26, 1870 in Steinsfurt). Elise was a sister of Herman Weil.

Alicia and Sandor did not have any children. Dr. Barta worked for a bank in Budapest.

After the occupation of Hungary through the Nazis in 1944, Sandor Barta was deported to Germany. Here he was, as many Hungarian Jews, taken to the Colditz camp, an auxiliary of the Buchenwald concentration camp, where the firm Hugo und Alfred Schneider AG (HASAG) had a production place for bazookas.

Dr. Barta was murdered there on March 25, 1945. He was 52 years old.
He is remembered on the Memorial Plaque in the synagogue.

Alicita returned to Argentine and later died in Buenos Aires.
