Margita Steinerova

This is my mother Margita Steinerova, nee Abrahamova, aged 20. The photo was taken in 1927 in Bratislava; the photographer's name was Vincenti. Her twin sister Irenka has the same portrait. Even if you would put both portraits next to each other, it would still be hard to say who is who, especially because both sisters were dressed equally. I have these two portraits framed in my bedroom opposite my bed. I have to say that I was never really close to my mother. She never had time for me, so I don't know much about her. She was killed in Auschwitz in 1942.
