Laszlo and Janos Gottlieb

This is me and my father. I was very little, some three years old. The photo was taken in Nagybanya.

My father was called Laszlo Gottlieb, he was called Laci within the family.

His Romanian name in the Romanian era - after 1920 - was Vasile. He was born in 1897 in Maramarossziget.

After my father finished high school, he got to Budapest. He studied for one year there, at the Technical University.

World War I broke out, therefore he interrupted his studies, and he was enrolled directly into the Military Academy, because he was a university student.

The house where Janos Gottlieb was born

This is the house in Nagybanya where I was born. My father wrote on the photo the name of the street.

In 1919 my father went back to Maramarossziget, he fell in love with my mother, and married her.

They moved to Nagybanya together in 1926 or in 1927, because there were better possibilities of employment.

My father became one of the main clerks of the famous Phonix Factory, which was mainly a sulfuric acid factory. He worked there until World War II, until deportation.

I took this photo in the 1960s here, in Iasi.

With Arnold Sandor, grandma's second husband - whom I loved a lot as well - my grandmother had two children:

Pal Sandor and Erzsebet Sandor, who were ten, respectively thirteen years younger than my father.

Pal Sandor was the elder; he was born in 1907 in Maramarossziget. They lived in Bucharest.

Janos Gottlieb as a child

The photo was taken in 1934, I was five years old then. It was my father [Laszlo Gottlieb] who took the photo in the garden of our house in Nagybanya.

My father was a great photographer, he even had his own studio at home.

I was born in 1929 in Nagybanya. From the age of three I lived at my paternal grandparents.

Janos Gottlieb and Agnes Hirsch

This is Janos Gottlieb and Agnes Hirsch. I’m five years old, and I’m with Agi Hirsch, a girl from Marosvasarhely, who was spending her holidays in Nagybanya, and we spent the summer together.

She came to visit a relative, but she visited us as well. We had a good apartment, it wasn’t ours, but the house was surrounded by a nice garden, and my father [Laszlo Gottlieb] took the photo there.

Janos Gottlieb

This is me [Janos Gottlieb]. The photo was taken recently.

What do I consider myself? The question arises also because I live in a mixed marriage.

Well, first of all I consider myself being a Jew, because both my father and my mother were Jewish; but it's not enough.

My father was atheist, and I'm atheist too. So I don't feel being Jewish because of religion, to be more precise.

I'm convinced that my love for learning comes from my Jewish origins. This is a good feature of Jews.

Gabor Lazar

This is me, Gabor Lazar. I’m holding the 250 gram pure silver medal I was awarded for the medical articles I published in the Esperanto language.

My main hobby is Esperanto. I’m a member of the Universal Esperanto Association, the Universala Esperanto Asocio, moreover I’m the Romanian representative of the Universal Medical Esperanto Association, whose headquarters are in Rotterdam.

The Medicina Internacia Revuo, the International Medical Journal is also issued in Rotterdam.

Gabor and Tibor Lazar

This photo was taken here, in Kovasna, in 2004; the person on the left is me, Gabor Lazar, next to me is my son, Tibor Lazar.

I have a son, Tibor Lazar, he was born in 1959. He finished at the timber vocational school, a technical school in Kezdivasarhely.

He worked here in Kovaszna at the furniture factory, after that he was unemployed for two years, because the factory was liquidated.

Now he works in Kezdivasarhely as a technician in the furniture factory, called Mobexpert.
