This photo was taken in the summer of 1938 in Postyen. From the left: my mother, Rozsa Kauders, my sister, Klara, me and my father, Istvan Kauders. During the previous year's trip through Vienna and Czechoslovakia, we spent a day in Postyen. We liked it so much that the next year we travelled there and spent two weeks in a bed and breakfast there.
This is Ilona, my father’s only sibling. She married Zsigmond Brechel, the son of a very well-to-do family from Beszterce [now Bistrica, Romania]. That was a patriarchal Jewish family in Beszterce. They had a brewery called Hohrich and Brecher. They made a quality of beer that was very well known in Transylvania.
In this photo you can see my father, Saia Grunberg, at the end of World War I. This photo was taken in Trentschin-Teplitz, what is today Trencianske Teplice in Slovakian. He was held prisoner there by the Austro-Hungarians until the war was over, in 1918.
In this photo you can see my father, Saia Grunberg: he is the second from the right, in the back row. The photo was taken during World War I, when he fell prisoner to the Austro-Hungarians and had to stay in Trentschin-Teplitz, in what is today Trencianske Teplice, in Slovakian. I think the man in the middle of the back row was the one who supervised them, because he isn’t wearing the white collar the prisoners had to wear.
This is a photograph of the wedding of my parents, Bernhardt Wohlstein and Renata Schubertova, in 1920. My grandparents are seated. They are listed as follows (beginning second from left): my mother's parents, Maximilian and Lolka Schubert, and my father's parents, Katarina and Samuel Wohlstein.
My grandfather Armin Mittelmann is in this picture, while on a trip abroad, when he went by himself to Czechoslovakia to Postyen [Piestany today], a spa. This was in 1927, and he went there to treat his stomach problems. In the back row, in the middle, that's grandpa, a tall, handsome man, under the train window with two people. The crowd were probably passengers or a group of vacationists.
This is a camp postcard my father Fulop Riegelhaupt sent to one of his uncles, Hermann Fischmann to Vasarosszentgal, in Baranya county. The postcard indicates 23rd November 1923 and the postal code of the camp.
My father Fulop Riegelhaupt is in this picture, in 1913 in Kassa. It was taken in the studio of Bela Bram. He was probably there on military duty, but as far as I know he had no rank, nor any special education. He sent his picture to his uncle to Hatszeg. I didn't know him personally, I only know his wife was my father's aunt, I even was in their house, it was a very nice house. He too was a timber merchant.
This is me with the girls' class of the Jewish school in Topolcany. The photo was taken in 1941.
