Dezider Bachner

This photograph shows my brother, Dezider Bachner. It was taken in Topolcany, at the studio of Aladar Vermes, in the 1920s. My oldest brother was named Dezider and was born in 1903 in the town of Dezerice. He apprenticed as and became a master tinsmith. He had a tinsmithery workshop in Topolcany. During World War II he was deported to the labor camp in Novaky, where he was head of a tinsmithery workshop. Unfortunately he didn't survive the war. He was murdered along with this wife Gizela and three children, Judita, Ruzena and son Jozef in Kremnicka.
