This is my grandmother Regina. She was born in a big family in Papa. As I often heard from my father, she was considered the most beautiful girl of Papa. She was married to my grandfather in 1879 and they had four children. She had serious financial problems after her husband died in 1928, but she was helped by her late husband's uncles who had emigrated to America in the 1870s. They regularly sent her money, for which she was especially thankful since the Jewish community of Papa was in such a bad shape that often it couldn't pay her the widow's allowance on time. Until her death she lived with one of her daughters, Jolan, who was deaf and dumb from birth.
