This is a document I got in Mauthausen, certifying that I was in that camp during the war. The document is dated 1945 in Mauthausen.
I was in forced labor until 1944 when we were handed over to the Germans at Hegyeshalom, but not as laborers but as deportees. Then we were brought down to Harka with a little trip through Austria and then to Mauthausen where we were for about two weeks. In Harka, we dug tank traps for the Russian tanks. We spent nearly five months there.
This is a very interesting photo. This was taken in a factory in Austria where my mother, Erzsebet Gunst, plus a whole lot of other Szentes people were doing forced labor during the Holocaust. I think the photo was taken after the liberation, and only the Austrian workers with whom my mother worked are in it. I do know, that among the Szentes people, many kept in touch with these people who were truly good to them. They sent this photo, and gave it to my mother who put it away.
This is my grandfather Alexandru Kohn's brother, the one who stayed in Vienna. I don't remember what his name was, but I know he was engaged in acquisitions at the imperial court of Emperor Franz Joseph. The photo was taken in Vienna in 1898.
This is a photograph of my grandmother Rosalia Weiner. It was taken at the beginning of the 20th century in Vienna, where my grandma lived.
