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.

Jozsef Lazar in the KuK army

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.

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.
