Gabor and Rozalia Lazar with a Japanese friend

This photo was taken in Nagyvarad in 2003, on the occasion of a Medical Esperanto Congress, which I participated in with my wife.

You can see me, Gabor Lazar on the right, next to me a Japanase friend of ours, on his left side my wife, Rozalia Lazar (nee Orban).

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.

Gabor, Tibor and Rozalia Lazar

Me, Gabor Lazar, am standing to the left, with my wife, Rozalia Lazar (nee Orban); the person between us is our son, Tibor Lazar.

The photo was taken in Covasna in 1972.

My wife, Rozalia Orban, was born on 28th June 1933, here in Kovaszna; she is reformed.

She finished high school in Kovaszna, and she was a clerk at the hospital and at the construction co-operative.

We built up our house with hard work; it belonged to my mother-in-law and was an empty lot; she gave it to us to build a house here.

Gabor and Rozalia Lazar

This is me, Gabor Lazar with my wife, Rozalia Lazar (nee Orban). The photo was taken in Satu Mare

After I passed the final examination in 1947, at the Reformed Gymnasium in Szatmar, and I sat the entrance examination at the Medical and Pharmaceutical Institute in Marosvasarhely, and I graduated in 1953, with honors.

Between 1953-56 I worked at the Blood Collection and Storage Centre in Marosvasarhely, as a consulting doctor.

Gabor Lazar

This is me, Gabor Lazar, when I was young. The photo was taken in the 1950s.

I graduated from the Medical University in Marosvasarhely in 1953, with honors.

In 2003 we had the 50th anniversary class reunion at the university; I got a golden diploma, they gave it to those who were alive.

There were 120 of us who graduated that year, there were only 39 of us still alive.

Doctors, pharmacists. And we had the 55th anniversary high school reunion in 2002.

I took the state examination in 1953, and then the placements followed.

Jozsef Lazar's certificate of town police commander (2)

This was my father’s town police commander certificate.

In 1945 a new town leadership was needed, so we organized the People’s Police.

What happened then? There were just a few people in Szatmar who could have been taken into account as communists.

In Romania the Siguranta had imprisoned the illegal communists.

They had had two possibilities, either they were beaten to death, or they spoke.

This is my father when he was a soldier during World War I. The photo was taken in Szatmarnemeti.

My father was born in 1891, in Nagybanya. He had a final examination certificate, which showed that he graduated from a school of commerce.

He was a bank clerk in Szatmar when he was young; then, when a common army was established for the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy during World War I, he enrolled there as a first lieutenant and fought throughout the World War.
