The wedding picture of Miklos and Szeren Farkas, Vera’s parents

My parents’ wedding. [My parents] wedding was in 1920 in Kallosemjen, it was held at their place, in the courtyard of their house.

They had a marriage arranged by a so-called shadchen [match-maker], my mother was paired up with my father, and then a great and beautiful love emerged from it. They came to Pest in 1922.

My father was born in 1887. In 1904 he moved to Pest, and became a merchant's apprentice, and then he was sent to school from there, and he completed some kind of commercial course.

Vera Farkas with her parents

My parents and me. [My parents] wedding was in 1920 in Kallosemjen, it was held at their place, in the courtyard of their house.

They had a marriage arranged by a so-called shadchen [match-maker], my mother was paired up with my father, and then a great and beautiful love emerged from it. They came to Pest in 1922.

When I was born, [my parents] already lived in Verseny Street, in the neighborhood of Keleti railway station in a small, one-and-a-half room apartment. Those were old workers' homes.

The little Vera Farkas with her family

My maternal grandparents and my mother´s siblings.

Maternal grandfather's name was Jakab Strausz, grandmother's name was Betti Weisz. They lived in Kallosemjen. It was a typical Szabolcs county Hungarian village: a small, dirty village, with wooden fences.

They [the Jews] didn't live separately, but there was quite a Jewish life, they came together in the synagogue. The synagogue was very nice, and it was on the main square.

There were quite a lot of Jews, and they came in from the neighboring farms. Just like my aunt and her husband.

Ervin Fenyes

This is [my son] Pubi [Ervin Fenyes] as a baby. The picture was taken at our home in Budapest in 1930.

My son was born on 25th July 1929. Of course it wasn't the best time for it, but children come the quickest, and if I hadn't so ignorant…

My child was nine months old when I opened the shop. My stepmother didn't help; she never came, not even once, to look after my son.

I had to keep an employee to have someone take care of my child if I wasn't at home. I employed a young one, who I thought would take care of my child and do the housework.

Margit Toth, Laszlo Toth and Erzsebet Barsony

This photo was taken in Kispest after the war, around 1946.

The dresses were made by my sister [Margit Toth, nee Bauer], I still have mine in my closet.

Margit’s husband Laszlo Toth is sitting in the middle, Margit is on his left, I am on his right. The dog sitting in my lap is Buksi, [my son] Pubi’s [Ervin Fenyes] dog, who lived for a while after the war.
