Johana Goldberger

This is a picture of my grandmother Johana Goldberger in Luhacovice in 1935. In the photograph she's the first on the left. I don't know the other people.

Grandma Johana, née Deutelbaum, was born in Vítkovce, near Topolcany, as the youngest of her parents' twelve children. They were a large family, but only up until the Holocaust. In my mother's generation there were 46 or 48 cousins. Around three quarters of them didn't survive the war.

Olga Neuwirthova with her daughter Ema Panovova

This is me with my mother, Olga Neuwirthova, nee Bondyova. The photo was taken in Prague in the 1930s.

My mother's first marriage didn't last long. Her husband caught typhus and later he became mentally ill; he was treated in a psychiatric clinic. My mother stayed alone with me, later she got divorced and married to a Russian immigrant. He wasn't a Jew. His name was Doctor Sergej Panov and he was a doctor, too. My grandparents didn't like him, but when the political situation got worse, my grandfather asked him to protect the family.

Julius Bondy with friends

This is my grandfather Julius Bondy with friends in the spa in Luhacovice. There’s engineer Snabl and his wife. I don’t recognize the other couple.

My grandfather produced soda water; but it was rather his wife, Maria Bondyova, nee Buchwaldova, who ran the company, which was located on the main square in Holic. My grandparents weren't rich; they were middle class businessmen. Although they weren't rich they used to go to the spa in Karlsbad or Marienbad or Luhacovice; there were always many Jews there.

Julius Bondy with a Jewish company

I think this photograph could be interesting for you. This is my grandfather Julius Bondy with a Jewish company in either Karlsbad or Marienbad. I think it was a habit then to visit a spa.
