Beno Rintler’s wedding photo with parents

Bild

In this photograph, the second from the right is Clara Rintler, uncle Avram Klein's eldest daughter. The one next to her, on the right, is her husband, and the groom on the left is their son, Beno Rintler. The ones on the left, next to the groom, are probably the parents of the bride. Beno Rintler and his wife lived in Botosani as well, but I no longer remember what they did for a living. I believe they were employed, but where - I forget. The photograph might have been taken in the 1950's.

My mother's brother was a very endowed man, as they say. His name was Avram Klein, but everybody called him Avromta. He was a tall, handsome man, and he was renowned, he was very well read, had a Jewish culture. He observed tradition, he often went to the shil [shul]. He also performed prayers at the temple on many occasions. But he did so voluntarily, didn't receive any money for it. He was a pious person. He was about 5 years older than my mother [was born around 1870]. He had a leather shop in Botosani. My uncle died when he was around 90 [probably in the 1960's]. He died here, in Botosani, he has a monument at the cemetery together with his wife.

His wife's name was Seindl, and they had 8 children: 4 sons and 4 daughters. Clara Rintler, Saly Haimovici, Roza Flaiser, Liza Malis - these are the daughters. And these were the sons: Marcu - the youngest -, Iancu, Iulius, and … oh my, what was his name - I can't remember it just now. They were all older than me. The youngest of them was 4-5 years older than me. All of them graduated high school. The boys were merchants, their father's trade. But not all of them lived in Botosani. Iulius lived in Targu Ocna, he too ran a leather shop. [Targu Ocna is located 82 km south-west of Bacau.] I once went to visit them, I was young back then. He had 2 sons, the name of one of them was Beno Klein. Clara Rintler - uncle's oldest daughter - lived in Targu Ocna, she got married there. They had a son, Beno Rintler. Liza Malis lived in Falticeni. [Falticeni is located 27 km south of Suceava.] Saly Haimovici and Roza Flaiser lived in Botosani.
