This is a photo of my father Albert Bozoky's family: in the back row, from left, you can see my father, near him my mother, Johana Bozoky, near her my cousin, Alice Meier; then, in the front row, there are two of my father's sisters, Elena Meier to the left, Alice's mother, and near her, aunt Rozalia. I don?t know if it was a special occasion, but Aunt Rozalia came to Budapest - where the photo was taken, in the 1940s - rather seldom, so they probably wanted to have a photo together.

The house where my grandfather lived when I knew him belonged to my aunt's husband, a Jew called Jakob Meier, who was an engineer. My aunt was in charge of the household; she had no help, although they weren't poor people. They had one daughter, Alice, who left for Sweden in 1947. She had a son, George, who was born there in 1948.

My aunt Elena used to come over to our place all the time, because her daughter, my cousin Alice, lived in our house; the situation was like this because in that village, Maglod, there was no school. She went home at the end of the week, as it was close. I only visited Aunt Rozalia, who was in Targu Mures, once. She came to visit us a few times after that, but after 1940, when the war broke out, all connections broke off. They wrote letters to my parents for a while, but after that they were deported.
