Agi Laszlo, född den 2 juni 1930 i Budapest, Ungern. Judisk Förintelseöverlevare, under andra världskriget internerad i koncentrationslägren Auschwitz-Birkenau och Plaszow. Klarade sig från att bli mördad i en gaskammare för att hon inte ville. Vid ankomst till Auschwitz-Birkenau ska Josef Mengele ha bestämt sig för att Laszlo skulle avrättas i en gaskammare, men eftersom hon inte ville och istället sade nej så lät Mengele henna leva:

"In late 1944, 14-year-old Agi, her younger sister and her mother were sent to Auschwitz, the Nazi death camp in Poland -- for the second time. They had spent the past several months at Plaszow, a forced labor camp in Poland. This time at Auschwitz, the Jewish family from Hungary stood in front of the infamous Dr. Josef Mengele, known as the "Angel of Death" for his medical experiments on Jewish prisoners and choosing who would live as forced laborers and who would be killed in the gas chambers.
A flick of Mengele's hand to the right meant life, while the left meant "the other place," Agi said. "My mother and sister were sent to the right, but I was sick, so he pointed in the other direction," she said. "I said no, and he looked very surprised. I don't think anyone had told him no before. He said I was too sick to work. I said I could, let me prove it. He sent me to the right with my mother and sister. I don't know what changed his mind.""[1][2]
