This is the only picture I still have of my maternal grandfather, Mor Kohn. It was taken in Budapest in 1910.
In this picture, my father, Sandor Gunst, is holding me. I was probably about one year old. My father is in uniform, you can see his commendation medals, too. The picture was taken in Szentes in 1917.
This is a photo of me with my mother, Erzsebet Gunst. I could be a couple months old in this photo. I think this was the first picture ever taken of me.
This is the wedding photo of my parents, Sandor Gunst and Erzsebet Gunst, nee Kohn. The photo was taken in Hodmezovasarhely, where they had their wedding, in 1909.
My mother, Erzsebet Kohn, was born in 1887, in her birth certificate she appears as Orzsike and her Jewish name was Eszter. I know that my mother, after completing four years of civil school went to school in Temesvar there were higher girls' schools at that time, where they learned housekeeping and community skills. I think it was for two or three years, and my mother graduated from it.
This is the most complete photo of my father's family. Everyone in it is from his direct relations. The photo was taken at my grandparents' diamond anniversary in Szentes in 1929. This is the last photo of my grandparents, indeed, they both died in the same year and nearly at the same time. They couldn't exist without each other. My aunt Maca (Droth, nee Gunst) is sitting next to my grandparents here. My uncle Erno (Gunst) is standing on the left side, beside him is Aunt Helen (Weisz, nee Gunst), and next to her is my father, Sandor Gunst.
This is my paternal grandfather. The photo was taken in Szentes in 1918. My paternal grandfather was Lipot Gunst. I've seen the birth registration certificate and his name is registered as Leopold, but they called him Lipot in the shop, that's what was written on the sign: 'Lipot Gunst.' My grandfather was born in Szentes in 1844.
This is a very, very old photograph. I don't know how it survived for a century and a half. I'm not completely sure where and when the picture was taken. These are my great-grandparents with their eleven children. My grandfather, Lipot Gunst, is the second on the right in the row standing. Aside from my great-grandparents, I recognize Uncle Berti, who was called Bertalan. He's the boy standing next to great-grandfather.
