Natan and Alexander Reitman

This is a picture of my father Alexander Reitman and his grandfather Natan Reitman. The photo was taken in Zlate Moravce in 1919. My father was ten years old here.

My father was from a poor Jewish family. His father, Gustav Reitman, was from a family with 16 children. He worked with leather and later he bought-out seeds and corn. My parents married in 1937 and they lived in Zlate Moravce, where my father had his wholesale company, along with his father and brothers. They were not Orthodox Jews.
