A Book Printed in the Holocaust, and inscribed after redemption

I recently came across a copy of a Shulchan Aruch printed in Budapest in 1941, while the Jews of the neighboring countries were already being massacred. On the free-end of this volume, was an inscription " תש"ח שנה ראשונה למלכות ישראל  יצחק אייזיק כאהן"
"5748 (1948) year one for the kingdom of Israel"
Only a few years apart, a great reflection of the extremes in the condition of the Jews in history.
