Leon Lidgi and his wife Sarah Lidgi in the USA

Bild
This is my uncle Leon Lidgi, one of my mother's brothers, with his wife in the earlier years after their immigration to the USA. My mother had two brothers and one sister, who immigrated to the USA in 1897/8. Her brother Leon Lidgi had four sons: Haim, Norbert, Marko and Albert. There is something interesting about our family - the twins Haim and Norber took part in World War II exactly at the time when I also took part in it. One of them, Norbert, died as a pilot, without us ever meeting. This runs in our blood, I think.
