We are here somewhere in Iacobeni.
In the front row you can see my brother, Pincu Kaiserman, at his left it’s me, Rosa Kaiserman, and to the right is our sister Clarisa Tucarman.
In the back row is my mother, Rifca Kaiserman, and that man I don’t know anymore who he was – a friend, some neighbour, or the owner of that house, we rented there. I don’t know who took this photo.
My brother rests on a stick, which he himself sculpted, and he was very proud of it.
This picture features me and my brother in the yard of the house, where we lived in our childhood.
It was a very long yard with many apartments on both sides.
I, Rosa Kaiserman, am on the right side, in the middle is my brother, Pincu Kaiserman and to the left my sister, Clarisa Kaiserman.
We were very little, I was five to to six years old. Between us is a difference of one and a half years.
This is me, Rosa Kaiserman.
The back of the photo reads 14th September 1941. I was almost 16 years old.
I was wearing an ecru dress, made of some cloth – it was a very well done, with sporty pockets. It was a very beautiful frock.
On that time there were three-quarter length dresses, just below the knee.
Because of my eyes I was called the Chinese girl.
I don’t know why. Did I have a lackadaisical look?
They called me that way, the Chinese girl. Actually Chinese women are beautiful.
Interviewer: Major Emoke
Date of the interview: October 2006
I met Ms. Rosa for the first time at the Club of the Jewish Community in Iassy.
Twice a week about 10 mostly elderly women gather there before dinner time, they take tea and cookies, play Rummy and chat.
This is me [Janos Gottlieb] in my office at the university.
I’m retired, still I go to the university every day; I have my place and my computer there.
The photo was taken in May 2006, it was my wife’s eightieth birthday.
I go to the university every day, because I'm still engaged in many scientific projects - not only here, but at home too -, and I kept this hobby of mine.
So I'm still busy with scientific matters; now I'm interested in these new issues, the fractals in physics; these are interesting issues, and I'm working on them.
This is me [Janos Gottlieb] and my wife [Cleopatra Mociutchi] in the building of the University of Iasi. It was my wife’s anniversary.
In May 2006 she turned eighty, and our former colleagues organized a very nice birthday celebration. My wife was extremely touched.
My first wife [Aliz Luta] was born in 1927, she is older than me. My second wife is older too, she was born in 1926.
It is me [Janos Gottlieb] on the photo taken by my father [Laszlo Gottlieb] sometime at the beginning of the 1930s, but I can’t recall where.
I was born in 1929 in Nagybanya. From the age of three I lived at my paternal grandparents.
My grandparents lived in a village somewhere near Nagybanya for a while, I was with them there too, then in Nagybanya.
But when I was five years old, my father took me with him, he rented a quite nice apartment, in a nice part, let's say, of Nagybanya, in a villa.
