    Gabor was born February 6, 1917 in Budapest (then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire) as Sári Gábor (Gábor Sári in Hungarian order), the middle of three daughters born to Vilmos Gábor (19 September 1881, Budapest – 07 July 1962, Budapest), a soldier, and Jolie Gabor (née Tilleman; 1896–1997).
    More Details Hide Details She was reportedly named after Sári Fedák, a popular Hungarian entertainer. Her elder sister, Magda, was a socialite, and her younger sister Eva, was an actress and businesswoman. Their parents were both from Jewish families. Gabor's mother, Jolie, was an aunt of Annette Lantos, the wife of Hungarian-born U.S. congressman and Holocaust survivor, Tom Lantos. It was this man who saved my life." Gabor's maternal grandmother and uncle Sebastian (Annette Lantos's father) chose to remain in Budapest feeling they "had a good place to hide." However, both died during an Allied bombing raid. The fate of Zsa Zsa's three maternal aunts, Jolie's sisters, remains unclear. Following studies at Madame Subilia's, a Swiss boarding school, Zsa Zsa was discovered by tenor Richard Tauber on a trip to Vienna in 1934 and was invited to sing the soubrette role in his new operetta, Der singende Traum (The Singing Dream), at the Theater an der Wien, making her first stage appearance.
