This is a photo of my cousins, from left: Karol Kürti and Vojtech Kürti. Our entire family was very into sports. Their mother even owned and operated a sporting goods store in Ruzomberok. This photo was probably taken in Makov in 1938.

Karol and Vojtech were the sons of my mother’s sister, Malvin Kürti, nee Duschnitz. Malvin’s husband, Artur Kürti, was a doctor. They lived in Ruzomberok. They had three sons. Uncle Artur died at a young age of TBC. When my aunt became a widow, she opened a store with sporting goods in the town. Her sons helped her a lot with it. The oldest was Alexander. He was born in 1904 and studied mechanical engineering. The middle one, Vojtech, was born in 1907 and the youngest, Karol, in 1914. Both of them graduated from university in Brno, specializing in roads and bridges.
