The wedding of Anna Czitrom

This photo was taken on my sister's wedding day.

My sister Anna Czitrom is the bride with the bride-bouquet in her hands. Next to her there is her husband Ferenc Czitrom.

The first woman sitting on the left, next to my sister, is Aunt Gizella [Nandor Friedenthal's wife], who adopted my sister.

Somewhere in the photo there must be my grandmother Francisca Feder too, but I cannot tell you for sure which is her, because of my poor eyesight.

My sister, Annus was born in 1912. She finished primary school in Nagyborosnyo.

Alice Kosa in the 1980-90s

This is me, Alice Kosa, in the 1980-90s.

I took on a job late, I worked for six years and eight months only. It has a story too - life consists of these minor stories.

Since I wasn't ugly at all, my husband didn't want to let me go to work by no means.

He cheated me, but he couldn't stand that I would cheat him. But I never had something like this in my mind.

Alice Kosa in her apartment

This is me Alice Kosa at home, in our apartment in Sepsiszentgyorgy.

We lived there [in Brasso] only for two years, and in 1940 we came back to Sepsiszentgyorgy.

In Sepsiszentgyorgy we lived in the Kozfurdo street - it [the house] is still there -, because Romanians left, and we rented a nice, one-storied apartment surrounded by a garden, and a large field in front. It had three rooms, kitchen and bathroom.

It belonged to a Romanian family, the Romanian man had a Hungarian wife, but she felt to be more Romanian than her husband.

Judit Dezsi as a girl

This is my daughter Judit Dezsi [nee Kosa], when she was a girl.

My Juditka was born in 1945. Juditka too liked languages very much, I thought she would study languages.

But she took to mathematics, and so only engineering… And she could have chosen a profession, a university, which was close.

We didn't have the financial means - though she had a scholarship too.

And that's why she had to choose something which was in Brasso, she finished timber engineering.

Alice Kosa and Judit Dezsi

This is me Alice Kosa with my little Juditka [Judit Dezsi, nee Kosa] on the balcony of our apartment in Sepsiszentgyorgy, in summer 1946.

We lived there [in Brasso] only for two years, and in 1940 we came back to Sepsiszentgyorgy.

In Sepsiszentgyorgy we lived in the Kozfurdo street - it [the house] is still there -, because Romanians left, and we rented a nice, one-storied apartment surrounded by a garden, and a large field in front.

Alice Kosa as a young woman

This is me Alice Kosa, as a young woman.

After the wedding we lived in Sepsiszentgyorgy, as the grocery he and his brother opened was there.

And he didn't want me to work. The shop was in the Csiki street, where the bookshop is today, next to the corner. 'Kosa Brothers'.

But his brother [Laszlo Kosa] was five years older, and he was the shopkeeper. Now, what happened?

It occurred that my husband didn't learn this professions, he was just measuring.

Alice Kosa at the end of the 1920s

This is me Alice Kosa, as a girl, at the end of the 1920s. I had a Jewish name - Szuri -, as one had to have. But nobody ever called me Szuri, I don't know what I would have done.

A child likes what he gets used to. The family called me Alica, called me Aliszka, but nobody called me Szuri

I finished four years of gymnasium in the Miko, I finished the fourth grade of gymnasium in 1924.

And then there was a two-years reformed school of commerce in Brasso, and I attended it, I finished my studies in 1926.

Alice Kosa at a festival

I don’t remember on what occassion this photo was taken, but in the middle, the girl in Szekler traditional skirt marked with an X is me, Alice Kosa.

This story of mine doesn't belong to the religious Jewish stories at all.

When I got married, I told my husband that I wouldn't [quit] my religion.

Even if I wasn't observing it, but I wouldn't quit it. I don't believe in that one more, so why should I? At the age of sixteen I was reading Hegel already.
