This is my maternal grandfather Eliezer Preis in the High Tatras. The photo was taken in 1930. We have a menorah at home with the engraving Eliezer Preis. My grandfather and my grandmother Helena Preisova, nee Rotmanova had three children: Katarina, Nely and my mother Marta. Sad memories are connected with the early 1940s. The eldest sister, Katarina, who lived in Kosino, which was part of Hungary then, came to visit her parents. They didn't know that this was to be their last encounter. My grandparents died in the Holocaust. They were deported in 1942 and perished in Auschwitz in 1945.
