This is my aunt, Anna Schwelbova, nee Steinerova, with little Zdenek, her son. He was named Neumann, because one of her husbands and the father of this little boy was Neumann. She was married about three times. She of course didn't survive the war. He was born around 1924, here he's tiny, so it could be around 1926. And for sure it's taken in a studio, in Prague.

Aunt Anna, my mom's only sister, was born on December 10, 1904. She was married about three times, and with one of her husbands, some Neumann, she had a son, Zdenek, who was two years older than I. I think that Neumann, but that I'm not sure of, maybe it was Schwelba, was a barber or hairdresser, something like that. Anna, her son and her mother, my grandmother Hermina Steinerova, went onto the transport already at the beginning of 1942, and maybe didn't even go through Terezin, but straight away somewhere further on. I think that they died somewhere in Poland.
