Nikola and Miroslava Vajda

This is a photo of my mother, father and my mother's sister. My mother, Miroslava, was Serbian and my father, Nikola, was Jewish. My father was from Austro-Hungary. When he graduated from secondary school, he went to Vienna to study. My father and mother met when they worked in a Belgrade brewery. He was a boss of what would be called the commercial department, where my mother worked as a clerk. There was great love and happiness between them. My father, although he came from a foreign country, found tranquility here, and my mother was very happy. My mother gave birth to my two brothers and me in the course of three years.
