Freedom, Love, Gold is a 70-minute documentary film that brings to life the incredible true story of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick E. Tarnay and their three young children, who, with much bravery and sacrifice, helped to save their homeland from destruction. In the last days of WWII, Hungary's treasury (32 tons of gold and national treasures, including the Crown of St. Stephen), along with 500 of the bank's family members, were spared due to the extraordinary selflessness and courage of the Tarnay family. Wrongly accused of betraying their country and threatened with execution, the Tarnays persisted in organizing and carrying out the relocation of the Hungarian National Bank and its personnel across the Austrian border. The three young sons are still alive to tell the amazing tale and travel back to Hungary and Austria to retrace the train route. The film tells the incredible true story of the Tarnays, who survived their daring three-month, 350-mile journey on the "gold train" from Budapest, Hungary to Spital am Phryn, Austria before immigrating to America.
