Marta Feher at her grandparent’s place

This is me at my mother’s parents’ place in Csaktornya.

My [maternal] grandmother was Hermina Hirschon, wife of Imre Lobl. I never met my grandfather, I think he died before my birth.

They were from Csaktornya. We went to Csaktornya once; my father came with us too. My grandparents had two children. Melania was my mother. Nandor was her brother. He was the younger.

He was managing director in a porcelain shop in Zalaegerszeg. He had a boy, Imike. They mostly spoke German in the family, though they spoke Hungarian as well.

Jozsefne Marta Feher with their first car

This is our first car with my second husband.

My second husband Jozsef Feheri wasn't Jewish. But we lived very happily, and loved each other very much. He was born in 1926. He was two years younger than me.

He was from Mezotur, but was born in Szent. I met him in such a way that he lived where we lived, in lodgings there on the first floor.

We stayed on in this house because my husband was a car-lover and there was a garage there.

He was an electrician and later a purchasing agent in AFESZ. Then he worked at the underground too, as an electrician.

This is a pioneer camp. We stayed here on an excursion with my second husband. This was sometime in the 1950s.

Marta Schlesinger on a school performance

This is a dance performance in school. It was a dance examination.

I didn't attend a Jewish elementary school; there was no such school in Zalaegerszeg. I even attended the convent school when I was 9 or 10 years old.

That was because an acquaintance of ours who lived with us was a teacher there. Then I went to middle school. The middle school lasted until I was 14 years old. I think I was 15 or 16 years old when I went to learn sewing - because at that time they didn't admit Jewish girls to the higher commercial school any more.

Marta Feher’s mother, Melania Schlesinger, on the beach

This is my mother [on the left] and my father [in the back]. I don’t know who the others are.

My mother worked at the pay-desk at the lido [in summer]. In winter she did needlework at home. When my mother was at the lido I used to splash about in the water.

I also played with the boys and rowed, and went down to the other mill; we had fun. My father had spent seven years on the Russian battlefield in World War I. He was taken prisoner. Communism was instilled into his heart out there.

Marta Feher as a little girl

This is me. I was born in 1924 in Zalaegerszeg.

I had no brothers and sisters. I didn't attend a Jewish elementary school; there was no such school in Zalaegerszeg. I even attended the convent school when I was 9 or 10 years old.

The wedding of Marta Feheri and her first husband Imre Neuwald

This is our wedding with Imre, my first husband.

My first husband was a Jew. He was called Imre Neuwald. I met him there in Zalaegerszeg, I don't know why, because I didn't get anything good from him. His brother put us in touch with each other.

He said he had a younger brother; "You'll have such a good life with him that you won't even have to put your hands in cold water", he said. Imre lived here in Budapest.

It was his brother who lived in Zalaegerszeg. But originally they came from Keszthely. Imre was a second-hand dealer.
