    I found Lenke’s passenger record. It says she’s from Banatski Brestovac, and is of German ethnicity.

      Just to expand on the Hungarian/Yugoslavian thing. Yugoslavian isn’t an ethnicity. Hungary lost some of its territory to Yugoslavia after WWI, but that didn’t change the ethnicity of the residents. While I have a suspicion that Lenke was also (at least partially) German, her language on the census is listed as Hungarian, and we should probably keep it that way.
