Dagmar Lieblova´s aunt and uncle

This is my aunt Ruzena with her husband on their vacation in France.

Ruzena was born in 1890. She married Ota Beran, who, I think, was a coffee importer.

They were well-off financially, but their only son, who I never met, was killed in a bike crash long before the war. Ruzena lived with her husband in Prague and later built a villa in Strancice, where we once came to visit.

I was really impressed by the place at the time, for there was a room with a door that led straight onto the garden via a staircase.

Ruzena and Ota were both transported to Terezin in September 1942 and straight on to Maly Trostinec, where they perished.
