My paternal grandparents Armin and Paula Kinszki with Blanka, grandmother`s sister. Blanka's husband was Lipot Baumhorn, one of the most well-known synagogue-builders.
Armin, as a young man, used to go to the Academy of Commerce. I don't think that he studied in Budapest, but only came here to work; he worked at the Anker insurance company. We didn't know my grandmother, but my grandfather was an educated man. He was also a sportsman; for example, he used to skate; I remember that he had a skating season ticket. Armin worked at the insurance company, and grandmother Paula stayed at home. They found a very nice three-storey villa in Ilka Street and moved there. I suppose [they rented] one level. Then their two children came along, but with a huge age difference.
