Moskovits Moric

This is a photo of my uncle Moric Moskovits. He is the second from left in this photo, and the rest of the men were friends of his. Uncle Moric was the youngest of my mother Bella Moskovits's brothers. I know very little about him. I had a friend in Halmeu; her name was Ruhele Schwartz, and I think she was a Jew too. Her mother had a long garden, with many trees, and we would go there and lose the others, until Uncle Moric would come looking for me. I know this uncle once beat me because I hadn't come home for lunch. Back then, he hadn't got married yet, and he lived with my grandmother, in Halmeu.
