Me, my son-in-law and my granddaughter in 1974.

My daughter met her husband at high school. And they went out and when they graduated they announced that they would get married but only when both of them had degrees.

And they stuck to it. And then I said to my daughter that it was very painful for us, for your father too (that her husband wasn't Jewish), but we will never make an issue of it. And so it was. She graduated with a Hungarian-English degree.

During (university) she (also) went to the Soviet Union, for good grades she was sent to Lomonosov University. And when she became pregnant with Gabor she also completed a translator-interpreter and travel guide training.

My granddaughter Andrea was born in 1973. She spent a lot of time with me when she was little.

After finishing secondary school, she went to university and graduated from the Department of English and the Department of Hungarian Language and Literature.

Now she is doing her PhD and she is working in the archive of the Literary Museum.

She got married this year. She was at my place a lot, at some point she even lived here because her parents moved out to Szentendre, which is 30 km-s from Budapest.

We got on very well. For her Jewishness is not so important, I think, but she is interested in all that I can tell her or show her of my life.
