Jozsef Schiller, Judit Kinszki’s great uncle

My grandmother´s brother Jozsef. He was the eldest and he became a journalist.  He never married.  After her husband died suddenly in 1919, my grandmother went to live with Jozsi.  They had a very big house, and we grandchildren used to love to go there.  They did not live in a very Jewish way at all, not to compare to my mother’s side of the family.  Joszi died in the late 1930s.

[My great grandparents] Zsigmond Schiller and Netti Stein had seven children: six girls, one boy. Blanka's husband was Lipot Baumhorn, one of the most well-known synagogue-builders. The third oldest was probably my grandmother, Paula. Then there was Nelli, who died in childbirth. Her daughter was raised by my grandparents. Then there was Frida. Auntie Frida, unlike the others, wanted to study and to have a job, so she became a certified teacher. She was the secretary of the mayor of Budapest. Later she left for England with her second husband. The sixth was Otto. He was the secretary of the National Association of Textile Manufacturers, which was a part of the Manufacturers' National Association.
