My parents Jakov and Adela on their honymoon in Venice in 1911.

The photo was taken at St. Marco Square. At that time couples got married with the help of the shatche, a person who finds a mate. That was such a good habit.  Father’s family was from Pecs, Hungary and my mothers from Levice, Hungary. During the engagement, my father met my mother, fell in love with her and that is how they got married. 

My father's family and his brother were always together and the two brothers ended up marrying two sisters. Both of our families were always very close and my father and his brother were partners in the shop. We lived together in the same house and socialized together.
