Magdalena Grossberger with her friend Eva Braun

I am pictured here with a friend called Eva Braun in Belgrade in 1946. She was a fellow student of mine. After the war, I finished the last year of high school in Sombor and then moved to Belgrade. In Belgrade, I lived in the Jewish dormitory and studied at the Faculty of Technology. I met my husband after the war, in the Jewish student dormitory in the Belgrade synagogue. We married in Belgrade on the same day as another Jewish couple from the dormitory. The two of us, the other couple, and all the witnesses lived in the Jewish dormitory, which confused the judge officiating at the weddings. We married on a Friday because on Friday afternoons the Jewish cafeteria served the best lunch, beans and apple pie, which served as our wedding feast.
