Mrs. Rosenfeld with her children and mother-in-law

My father had five brothers and sisters: Izidor, Rozsi, Ida, Frida and Zseni. Zseni's husband, Mendel Rosenfeld, was a stiller at the distillery in Iklod.

This Rosenfeld was original from Szaszregen.

They were four brothers: Mendel Rosenfeld, Lajos Rosenfeld [his children with wife and mother are in the photo], Karoly Rosenfeld and Jozsef Rosenfeld, we called him Puju.

They had a sister, who was married in Petrozseny.

Rozsi and Mihaly Eisikovits

After my mother got married, she was very happy when I was born.

This picture was taken in 1920, and I was some six months old. My mother is next to me.

I, Mihaly Eisikovits, was born in Szamosujvar, on 11 January 1920 in an orthodox Jewish family.

When I was 4, I already knew the morning prayers we had to say as we wake up.

I finished elementary school in Szamosujvar, in the Romanian Jewish school.

I learnt Yiddish and other disciplines they taught us step by step, beginning with the most elementary things.

Adolf Weisz, Dezso and Rozsi Eisikovits, and a friend

This photo was taken in my grandfather, David Weisz's house. The one sitting is Adolf Weisz, my father's older brother.

Those standing, from the left: my father Dezso Eisikovits, my mother Rozsi and a friend of the Weisz family.

My parents got acquainted in Szamosujvar. My father, as a soldier in the Austro-Hungarian army, had the accommodation there.

My late paternal grandfather lived already in Szamosujvar then.

They knew the Eisikovits family from Nagyiklod, so when my father got to Szamosujvar, he wasn't a stranger to them.

Dezso Eisikovits

This ox weighed 1050 kg, I remember my father told me this.

On the left in the picture that's my father, Dezso Eisikovits, while on the right side that's Samu Teleki, my father's business partner, while behind the ox there's an employee.

After my father wed my mother, grandfather took my father into his business.

They bought and fattened cattle, they exported them to Vienna and Prague - they had an agreement, about the quantity which they had to deliver weekly.

Resi Farkas

Resi Weisz is in this photo. She was one of my mother's sisters.

She wears the symbol of the Aviva Zionist women's organization.

It was a silver embossment with two or three palm trees, and under them the caption 'Cion'.

All the women and girls of the family were members of the Aviva.

My grandfather was a great Zionist, he was a member of the Barisia.

The meetings always took place at my grandfather's house, they felt good there because it was a pleasant atmosphere there.

Erzsebet and Andras Kremer

She is Bozsi [Erzsebet], the younger sister of my mother, Rozsi Eisikovits (nee Weisz), and her daughter.

Bozsi married Dezso Kremer, a corn-merchant from Nagysarmas.

They lived in Kolozsvar. They had two children, a son, Andris, and a daughter.

The son was around 5, the daughter one and half, two years when they were deported. The whole family perished in Auschwitz.

The eldest Weisz child was uncle Adolf, then came my mother, Karoly, Lora, Resi, Jolan and Bozsi.

Berta Naftali

In this picture that's one of my father's sisters, Bertuska [Berta].

She was my father's only sister who survived World War II. Because she was at her sister in Bucharest, she survived.

After the war she married to Balazsfalva, her husband, Naftali, was a lawyer who was a musician also.

He studied the jurisprudence in Italy, he came home, but because they lived in welfare in Balazsfalva, after the regime changed, they were considered kulaks [1] His parents had a store, but all what they had was confiscated.
