Alexander Reitman and the Richter couple

Image

This is a picture from Janko Weiss's wedding. You can see my father, Alexander Reitman (first from left) here. This is his typical gesture. Also on the picture are Katka Richterova and her husband. The photo was taken in Zlate Moravce in 1974.

Janko is the son of my mother’s sister Marta Weissova, nee Wassermanova. Marta survived Buchenwald, but her child and her husband died in the Holocaust. Marta married for a second time, unfortunately, her husband, Doctor Weiss died of a heart attack, when Janko was eight years old.
